I have been working at Cheezburger full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The most hilarious and fun company to work for ever.
They have a great strategy in place for the coming year.
They have been very profitable over the years

Cons

Key mistakes are being glossed over and covered up.
"No Drama" buttons handed out at all employee meeting. Terrible way to address feelings.
Primary sources of revenue have been ignored
CEO seems to be widely regarded as a consistent obstacle to productivity.

Advice to Management

Leadership doesn't require smoke and mirrors when done well.

    I have been working at Cheezburger full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The goal of the office is to "make the world laugh for 5 minutes of their day", so each day you can expect to smile. Dog friendly office... Who doesn't like dogs?

    Cons

    If you're looking to raise a family and make a career with internet humor, you came to the wrong spot. Nobody gets paid unless you've been at the company for more than 5 years. Even then, good luck requesting a pay increase. Want a promotion? Too bad... There is no room for any upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. When your employees are working their butts off, it might be a good idea to give them a pat on the back once and awhile.

    I worked at Cheezburger full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun set of people
    Some (now squandered) potential for mobile success

    Cons

    - Spinning door of management, without any clear direction provided at the top
    - Gimmicky stunts passed off as 'product' or 'innovation'

    Advice to Management

    Not much left to say at this point, bit of a comedy of errors
