No opinion of CEO

Pros

They pay pretty well. They are pretty cutting edge technology wise. You'll have lots of chances to work on big projects with the newest stuff. Training/Professional development is good.

Cons

Its a company with no real purpose. Every few months theres some new thing that we're "all about" and is going to make tons of money. Of course none of it ever works out. Its like the idea is throw things at the wall and see what sticks. Very old school dot-com feel.

I honestly can't see myself here more than the immediate next year or two. Mostly because everything is so in flux all the time, and whatever the big thing thats going to explode and be our flagship deal changes so much. Who knows what this company will be doing by then?

Advice to Management

You don't need any more damn layers of management.

    I have been working at Demand Media full-time

    Pros

    speaker series, thirsty thursday, free friday lunch, dog friendly environment and free snacks

    Cons

    Non-qualified employees in management positions because of the layoffs and they have no idea what they are doing. Awful designers and managers trying to wear too many hats at the same time that has poor design taste. Too much politics and don't waste your time being around with these poor creatives. Bottom line, if you want a job, accept the offer. If not, turn your head around and look for other opportunities that are more creative and challenging.
