No opinion of CEO

Pros

Small place to make an impact and get recognized. Easy and friendly people, great bay view, fun place. Small teams size too.

Cons

Going through a turnaround, may see projects being re-prioritized often. Has seen lots of employee churn lately, many positions open.

Advice to Management

Stick to the execution plan strictly and show results. Keep the act fast, run fast spirit alive and kicking well.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    you get a paycheck and some health benefits.
    parking.
    you aren't expected to work too hard, or put in too many hours. 10-5:30pm (6pm at the latest) with a 1 to 2 hour lunch if you feel like it.

    Cons

    there are 2 many to list here, but a few are:

    - Incompetent management who mostly care about people filling seats and "pretending" they're improving the business through short projects that try to improve NPS.

    - All of their competitors have a much better business because their sites perform very fast. Shopping.com has set the benchmark for completely irrelevant searches that take forever to load.

    - Even knowing this, management still can't listen to advice from engineers, only product managers... and in the end, these projects only fall short of a vastly pathetic goal.

    - They waste their time identifying issues that really are non-issues, and at the same time, don't spend any time with the real issues - improving site architecture and performance.

    - If you argue with your inexperienced (but promoted) manager, too much, he'll try to put you on a performance plan, all the while making excuses of what you did wrong, except, there's no real evidence...

    - Management gets off on their own pep talks ... you should give a shout out to the eBay CEO who comes to do the cheer-leading and curse "f$ck" and "sh$t" during his speech!! very classy!!

    - people who work hard and try to lead end up getting snuffed by insecure, jealous managers who can't even answer the question, "what do you do?" .. except to say "I have no idea".

    Advice to Management

    Move the company to eBay and get rid of those Shopping.com managers !!! get some new ones !!! Better yet, promote your senior engineers to be the managers!!!
