Negative Outlook

I worked at United Online full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Talented and diversified teams that brought different skills to the table.
Salaries were always at the top end of the market.
Good Bonus and Stock (ESPP/ESOP) structure for all levels of technology team
Generous Time-Off/Holidays (Thanks to CEO)

Cons

Old technologies and not much innovation
While company tried to be dynamic, there was no clear direction for some of the products as to how they are integrating and how they will end up shaping. Acquisitions also lacked clear strategic plan (at least was not communicated well within the organization)

Advice to Management

Just like technology integration, people of various business units need to feel like they are a TEAM. Except initial Juno/NETZERO merger, all the later acquisitions meant very little to any of the employees that are not part of the executive team due to the nature of how the business units were run in SILOs. Even though work force is 1500+, it never feels like that big a force because of lack proper integration and structure
