Pros

- Casual working environment
- Decent benefits as part of ValueClick Corp package
- Flexible / Relaxed Work Schedule
- Free drinks + snacks

Cons

- Poor Management - little to no communication, inexperienced management .
- Staff is made up of 80% junior staff (industry experience 0 - 2 years)
- Office is library - like; no talking, everyone with their headphones on
- Environment is very somber; staff is not encouraged to mingle / speak to one another

Advice to Management

- Get to know your employees - make them feel valued!
- Hire management that has actually managed a staff (who has not managed in China, where the environment is very different).\
- Invest in people's careers; there is no training or learning going on.

    Pros

    Scrappy, smart, can-do attitude in management. Have not met anyone here is unpleasant or unhelpful. Not much separation between management and worker bees. Very all-inclusive. They try and make it a nice place to come to work.

    Cons

    The internet is a 24/7 environment. We are not here 24/7, but there is no "down time." Lunch room is nice, but there is not a couch in the entire office for those working late that need some comfortable place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Love the open, embracing of new ideas from anyone who wants to have a voice
