Pros

Good place for young people to work to find out how media really works. Some good content, mainly reviews. Top notch analyst team.

Cons

Lots of editorial is basically content farm stuff, very SEO driven. Tech of the site is years behind competitors. Site does not put readers first, and it shows.

Advice to Management

Site needs to be rethought from top to bottom. Way too much clutter. Rethink or scrap content farm stuff. Switch to different CMS.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn about the technical publishing world.

    Cons

    Everything is financially driven. There is no credible mission statement or focus for the company beyond making the owners more money. There is no interest in soliciting the view, opinions, ideas, and contributions of the employees and staff. It is pretty autocratic where employees must do as they are told, even in situations where the employees have ideas to save costs or increase revenue.

    Advice to Management

    They are not interested in hearing any advice; they have made that very clear.
