I worked at Ziff Davis full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Decent Mentor, health benefits, gym reimbursement (limited),

Cons

The whole "Perception is reality" thing, where you always had to seem busy, no one believed in efficient work, lied about a raise

Advice to Management

Stop wasting so much time trying to force everyone to pretend to be busy, focus on where we can find efficiency and give that time to the employees, they would be a lot more willing to go the extra mile
