    I have been working at Dice full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and lots of vacation/time off. Flexibility is great in my department. If I need to take off on the fly because of kids my management is very supportive. Good pay and when you leave work you can really leave work (most of the time). Monday - Friday schedule and no weekends. Overall a good place to work

    Cons

    Career advancement is almost non-existent. Management has their favorites and most promotions (if any ever come up) go there. Promotions are made without interviews or consideration of opening it for people to apply.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more details on how to progress up in the company. What do you want, what are the expectations, how can I improve in my current role to be considered for other opportunities.

    Pros

    Winning team, great comp plan and lots of opportunity to make money

    Cons

    Disconnected management. No real path to move up in the company. Everyone has worked here so long.

    Advice to Management

    Not really sure, if feels like they are doing a fine job. I miss the superbowl ads, it seemed like it generated a lot of interest

    there is an emphasis on a sense of urgency, but sometimes that results in inconsistent approach and focus

    Advice to Management

    continue to focus on growth and providing direction and guidance to employees

    Pros

    There are some really sharp and professional individuals at Dice who are a joy to work with.

    Cons

    Dice has now grown past the small-business stage of the organizational life cycle, and beginning to see large business politics creep in to the organization environment.

    Advice to Management

    I am seeing many friends being hired, and departments taking on the personality and profile of the manager. This lack of diversity is already hurting productivity and decision making abilities because we are no longer hiring the best and brightest, but hiring friends with the same personality and outlook as the manager. This lack of diversity will hinder our abilities.

    "Great People; Awful Culture"

    I worked at Dice full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Flexible hours
    Casual environment

    This is neither the best company I've worked for; neither is it the worst. I chose the title for this review very deliberately. Almost to a person, the folks who work here are kind, considerate, thoughtful people. They are fun to work with. They were good people with a sense of mission, to help tech job seekers advance in their careers. They all seemed to genuinely agree with this mission, rather than simply being in it for a paycheck.

    Cons

    Extremely hierarchical
    No sense of strategic direction

    Despite the good people, the culture as a whole is not one that will lead to success, and despite being a tech-oriented company, is not very tuned in to the ethos of Silicon Valley. It's hierarchical to the point that I was not permitted to consult with the person immediately over my boss. My co-worker was chided for making a business suggestion to the president of the company. Similarly, the company, despite being relatively small, moved glacially. The result of this is that workers can complete plans in isolation, only to have them scrapped completely when the upper levels of management see them. Workers were not empowered to execute the strategies they laid out. In addition, the company seems to jerk back and forth with various strategies/tactics, rather than having an overall strategy, and taking steps to implement it. It was like a pendulum that was constantly swinging back and forth.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to create a mission and subgoals, rather than trying various tactics to see what would stick. I would also suggest a more hierarchical organization with openness to new ideas.

    Pros

    Good people - everyone works hard. Product is solid but not spectacular.

    Cons

    Technology at times seem a little dated. Company does not move as fast as competition is moving in product development. Product team needs to think outside the box.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the customer and end users. Use the customer input that the sales team bring in to move the product forward.
