Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

From 2005-2007, it was a fun, vibrant atmosphere. Pros include living in California, cutting edge online technology, free lunch, and friendly employees,

Cons

From early-2008 onward (after Facebook took the social networking lead), the party was clearly over. Suddenly there was a complete lack of focus, lack of transparency, and embarrassingly low morale.

Advice to Management

At this point, cut your losses and sell the company. The purchaser should be of a mindset similar to a real estate developer who's purchased a dilapidated building on a good piece of property -- destroy and rebuild.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    People are young and work without pressure. Working hours is short. We have parties with free alcohols very often. Company has dojo for knowledge sharing.

    Cons

    Web traffic keeps going down and users are switched or switching to facebook. Mass layoff happened few times and everyone is sad about that.

    Advice to Management

    The leaders do not give direction on where we go especially before and after the layoff. Nobody knows if it is safe to stay.


  2. "Software Developer INtern"
