I have been working at Ziff Davis full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Ziff Davis has a very young and friendly work force. The average age range is from 25-35. The management is very hands off and are good people at heart. The business has been acquired twice in the past 2 years by larger companies so they must be doing something right from an outside perspective.

Cons

There is very little carrer growth and or training/development. There are no incentives outside of you base salary to work for the company and everyone from management down to entry level employees are complacent. The product are mis represented to the clients and there is little support from management on a daily basis. I have not had a performance review in 2+b years

Advice to Management

Provide you employees with more incentives (stock, bonus, profit sharing ect) Management should be more proactive with their employees in the sense of carrer growth and training/development.

    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
