Pros

The benefits were above average. This is the big industry these days, so the level of security, or at least job skill portability was pretty high. Product Management at DC was very strong, but that's not enough to offset the weaknesses of the Engineering department: what a mess that was...

Cons

Everyone's work was really sloppy. The "scrum methodology" is generally making the situation worse. Communication between teams is highly inefficient, it's pretty much-every-man-for-himself career-wise. Can't say much about the other departments, but management within DTG was a freaking nightmare. (There were some exceptions, but the bad eggs really soured the whole affair.)

Advice to Management

    Pros

    Good Benefits & Culture, and growing industry

    Cons

    Promotions were few and far between, I felt stuck in a silo

    Advice to Management

    Give greater appreciation for the long hours employees put in, be more competitive with salary, and provide more opportunities for advancement.

    Pros

    Google has now purchased Doubleclick,, so free breakfast, lunch, and dinner is now available.

    Cons

    In my department at least, there was a very poor work life balance. You put in a lot of hours and there is zero upside to it.

    Advice to Management

    Once again I’m only speaking from the perspective of my department, but my manager was very disrespectful and had no idea of how to motivate employees. We were branded by other departments as "Amistad", and in an E-mail from out manager were told, “I understand that we work long hours on occasion, but this is the business we were in. If you want to seriously work a 9-5 job I will gladly write you a recommendation for McDonald’s.” “Occasion”, was an understatement by the way.
