    I worked at Digital First Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some good people who work there and the potential for interesting projects.

    Cons

    Management is focused on politics and looking good to investors, rather than investing in people, products, and digital media strategies. There's no effort to look at the competition, no effort to develop strategic products, no effort to develop internal talent (or attract rock star outside talent) to improve the team quality.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about how you can sell off parts of the company. Think about how you can solidify and make the existing company strong.

    I have been working at Digital First Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some nice people work there.

    Cons

    No company culture or values. Most long term employees are merely collecting paychecks and put little effort into the job. Company doesn't have the right skills to make the transition work. Too much financial accountability all the time and not enough time to do the job at hand. President severely lacks people skills, compassion and respect towards employees. Last, too much disrespect & yelling at each other.

    Advice to Management

    Involve yourself with employees. Show genuine care and interest in the staff, don't just sit in your ivory tower cutting people & expenses all the time. Create a culture where employees feel valued, respected and want to work there.
