    A Great Place To Work

    Aug 8, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great place to work with some of the smartest colleagues who really care about their jobs. Truly an entrepreneurial spirit inside and out. Lots of autonomy for ambitious employees to thrive. Having a flexible remote/hybrid work environment is a huge pro.

    Cons

    Despite lean team structures, there can be issues with red tape or things internally moving more slowly than needed.

    Not as expected. They're for sale for a reason.

    Pros

    If you're looking for your first job or first big corporate experience with a name brand, this will serve you well for a few years before you realize you're better than what they are feeding you.

    Cons

    • The nepotism is outrageous. • Promotions come with time there, not merit, so prepare yourself for a mediocre manager (at all levels) who is content with not rocking the boat and doing as they're told. • They preach diversity as a goal, but when it's hiring time internally they do not check that box. Ever. • Boring rinse and repeat, low-quality revenue streams. • Management does't understand tech (see management issue above), so prepare to work like it's 1999. • Instead of listening and improving, they demote or just talk poorly behind their backs about everyone from C-Suite to managers who attempt to modernize the brand.

    Awesome company, great product leadership

    May 14, 2022 - Senior Product Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    It’s a publisher so you can’t expect the product/tech org to run like a tech company, but it’s a way more effective product/tech org than what exists at many other publishers. Product leadership has done a great job of setting growth paths for PMs, and there are a ton of interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Revenue organization carries an outsized voice in what product/tech can and can’t do… I think this is changing though.
