    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
