      Best Company you will ever work for

      Pros

      BENEFITS! I get some of the best benefits I have ever had. The people are great to work with. It is like walking into another set of friends. Everyone is working towards a common goal to be the best in the industry. Its also awesome to see the company you work for on ESPN every day. Snacks in the break room along with couches, tvs, bubble hockey and more. I hope I work here forever!

      Cons

      Tough commute if you don't live in the city but that's the same for almost any job in Boston

      Pros

      Awesome perks, great people, exciting growth and opportunities -- ideal if you love sports! Fast moving company with very flat structure and autonomy over work. Every employee has the opportunity to make a significant impact on the direction of this rising star.

      Cons

      Things move very quickly at the office, which is generally a great thing but does mean that sometimes longer term research and insights can be overlooked in favor of short term priorities/"need it now" projects that might not drive as much value.

      Pros

      Perks are awesome. Snacks, coffee/nitro, beer, catered food on fridays, haircuts, massages, manicures, the list goes on. Most of the people are great. Compensation is on par or above places.

      Cons

      Org and process is pretty bad. Things don't seem to be thought through before decisions are made. A few people that have been here a long time are very stuck in their ways and not open to much change. Work on a lot of things that never get built or get pushed back.

      Pros

      Lots of autonomy, creativity, great team and great people. The people who work here are amazing people who buy in to the vision.

      Cons

      The site currently states $76-78K as the compensation at DK for a copywriter, and that is just not true, laughable, in fact. I ultimately had to leave because I couldn't afford to work there anymore. This is a very difficult company for any creative professional looking for fair compensation.
