    I have been working at Dice full-time

    Pros

    Great people, casual dress code, generous vacation & sick time, 401k match, college tuition reimbursement, health club reimbursement, free parking, fun activities planned by office staff.

    Cons

    ZERO transparency between staff, middle management, & executive management.

    Constant changes in sales processes with no thought or follow through.

    Moved from a sales based organization to a team based organization, and now that the sales have missed targets for 4+ years, the sales team is blamed for the negative & toxic culture.

    Customers have been lost due to ZERO marketing, and lack of Customer Support/Management to the customers has led to further negative growth.

    Product that made Dice great is now old, outdated, and obsolete.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to being a sales-based organization

    Engaged, intelligent and customer focused employees.

    I have been working at Dice full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic people
    Casual work environment
    Good benefits/insurance/401K match
    Generous vacation package
    Meditation Group
    Fun office gatherings, holiday parties, etc
    Dice pays above average to all departments

    Cons

    Lack of upper management strategy
    No trust in management from top all the way down to middle management
    Too many managers throughout the company
    Marketing failure for going on four years
    Failure to innovate the product
    Lack of direction in sales
    Customer service needs to get proactive on the phone, not just reactive. Get to work.
    Defeat within most departments has become toxic
    Non revenue generating departments need to understand that a lack of sales will eventually mean a lack of jobs in all departments. Too much socializing, not enough work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Get it together.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers
    Collaborative environment
    Excellent benefits
    Fair wages
    HR's focus on training and talent development
    Family-friendly environment
    Many employees have worked here for several+ years

    Cons

    Uncertainty/instability of the company
    Lack of trust in the capabilities and power of the Marketing team to generate engaging projects (turn-over, promos, campaigns, etc.)
    Sales' negative attitude towards processes/procedures and their job in general

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate with all employees....more frequent communication from Exec's would be great, if possible.

    Pros

    Dice is a great company to work for. Even though it is a publicly traded corporation, it has a small business feel. There is a lot of collaboration and upper management is seen often and open to listening to any feedback regarding the company. We have a great culture with a lot of fun work sponsored activities.

    Cons

    Change is inevitable, so you'll need to be comfortable with change. Sometimes that change doesn't always make sense but you won't be risking boredom here for sure.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    San Jose office has typical Silicon Valley amenities (free food and hard/soft drinks)
    Reasonable computers if you are in engineering
    San Jose office is near the Shark Tank which is nice -- and they pay for parking (or at least they did when I was there)
    Dice's Data Science team is friendly

    Cons

    In short - everything else is a total disaster.
    Since that's not long enough, allow me to explain:
    Most people think that Dice is a Silicon Valley company -- it's not. In fact, the vast majority of Dice employees are in Iowa, then New York and finally San Jose. This explains why the company is run so badly.
    Dice management tends to praise and promote their worst employees; the best ones (except the last two Marketing VPs - both were fired) usually leave out of frustration.
    Dice's sales force focuses their energies on their "job board" - it makes money, but they leave a lot of the table because their other products aren't sold very much.
    Dice's marketing department is a total disaster - they had a smart product marketer that did some great things, but he left leaving two fragmented "teams" grouped by "tech pro" and "employer" - neither of which have a clue how to promote to either audience
    Dice's product management department is a joke - they have no idea how to develop products that their customers demand, yet complain all the time that marketing doesn't do their jobs.
    Worst of all... they have an open office environment where everyone feels compelled to talk all the time so it's impossible to focus.

    Advice to Management

    Move the Dice job board into another business unit and kill this company once and for all!

    I have been working at Dice full-time

    Pros

    Determined to modernise and move with the changing recruitment space. New digital products that are making a difference. Do listen to employers as a whole. Good benefits and staff social events are encouraged. I do enjoy my time here, I will only leave for progression.

    Cons

    ultimately still an old legacy job board.

    Advice to Management

    Consider other areas outside of sales as being important to the business
