    Pros

    Cutting edge online advertising media company that has clients' best interests at heart.

    Cons

    Very low pay. Base salary is ridiculous and commissions/bonuses are miserably low.
    Furthermore, every DFM office is officiated with a newspaper they own and management is divided on "old school" newspaper vs "new school" digital.
    But that really wouldn't matter if they paid more. Or even decently. Which they don't.

    Advice to Management

    Show us the money!!!

    Pros

    Very Supportive folks to work with despite all the churn and chaos caused by mgmt

    Cons

    Poor communication up, down and across the board resulting in conflicting directives

    Advice to Management

    Don't listen only to what you want to hear. New POD structure is NOT working. Once the folks who are making you look good leave, your ineptitude will become obvious. Listen to the ones who actually know what they are doing.
