Pros

I believe that Digital River invests in their employees through training and other forms of professional development. I know that I can stay at the same company for a long time and do a variety of things pertaining to my areas of interest.

Cons

It is extremely fast paced - so for some it could be challenging. Also, the upfront training can be scarce at times due to how quickly the company moves. I enjoy it, but starting off was a little rough.

Advice to Management

Invest more in training the employees when they first start. Create an online training center.

    The company is driven, smart and exciting.

    Cons

    Previous experience is rarely relevant in such an innovative environment.

    There should be less micromanagement, trust the managers that you hire with salaries, promotions and training without the need of personal approval.

    Pros

    The comraderie between co-workers makes working at Digital River very enjoyable. For the most part, employees are SMEs and very dedicated, which leads to high quality output.

    Cons

    Digital River is a very demanding company which is reflected in the high paced work environment. Many people regularly work 50+ hours a week. The company is also unwilling to implement a policy around telecommuting or flexible work schedules. In some departments, politics play a very strong role, instead of personal performance, in determining promotions and success.

    Advice to Management

    Digital River needs to modernize its technology infrastructure, tools, and operating policies to match other market leaders online and in company management.
