    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


  2. "Fun place to work with startup mentality and enterprise issues."

    Startup that got bought by a bigger, small company. Management growth is making early mistakes and going through growing pains.

    More performance feedback and clear explanation of goals and future initiatives.
