    Pros

    Great times with great people. Wish the ride could have lasted a little longer. Goldleaf will be missed. Helped me build a strong network of talented people.

    Cons

    Somewhat outdated business model. Lacking innovation. Not too many bad things to say, personally loved it there but all good things must come to an end.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the company culture at the forefront. Reward those people that put in the extra effort, and always keep an eye out for ways to improve the product.

    Pros

    For my first team dev job, it was extremely fun. The company culture was great, the co-workers were a blast and us devs could get as comfortable as we wanted.

    Cons

    Within the year I was there they were losing money quick and in a rush to sell. It freaked out a bunch of employees there especially after a big layoff. Was an interesting thing to watch.

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure the majority of original management left after the merge, but I would say ask your employees for more ideas in times of stress. It's important to keep in mind that every employee has a different background and may know ways to contribute in moments of uncertainty (and certainty)

    Pros

    Great friendly people. Managers care about you. Coffee machines, no clock punching. It was the people, the company family.

    Cons

    Fighting a losing battle with Google and changing internet and advertisement worlds.

    Pros

    PG, when lasted was the best place I've ever worked for: I mean workers: your colleagues.
    The amazing people producing amazing value, which was often produced in a matter of weeks of effort.
    This was the best "company floor" I ever seen. However, company needs management ...
    keep reading ...

    Cons

    As to the managers, nothing really positive comes to mind.
    A lot of negativity in the final period of PG.

    Advice to Management

    consider perhaps something else than internet

    Pros

    Able to self-learn a ton about difference facets of the business and industry. You learn so much valuable info in this role because you come in contact with so many different parts of the company and business.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. No vision, direction, coaching or growing the teams. Played favorites and did not motive the team in any way shape or form. Definitely did not lead by example.

    Advice to Management

    Don't act like someone just killed your dog every time you hold a meeting. Motivate through positivity and equality and transparency. Things that have long been gone from this company:

    Cool people, good work/life balance, free snacks

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs recently so definite change in the office vibe

    Advice to Management

    Smaller space so it doesn't feel so dead

    Pros

    Great place to work for and learn new technologies. Very casual and friendly environment with a lot of office activities like table tennis, basketball, video games, free Friday breakfasts, first month Friday wine & beer, free event tickets (NBA games, concerts...) and many more.

    Very big office space, you don't have to sit in close cubicles with others like a lot of tech companies.

    Cons

    Not a lot of food options in walking distance, but plenty in 5 to 10 minutes driving distance.

    I have been working at PriceGrabber.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -excellent work/life balance
    -a non-micromanagement approach to business. It appears they hire employees who want to be at the company who appear happy. Although that may because of the free snacks in the kitchen.
    -From an innovation standpoint, the company seems to be heading in the right direction with their API development.
    -The company is always mindful to scale its code that's both reliable and tangible within a collaborative environment.
    -Speaking of a collaborative environment, I haven't found people with large ego's. There are a lot of really smart people who are great at what they do. Who's to say that people that have left the company weren't the underachievers.

    Cons

    -Every company can do better with communication. I would say that Sr. level management could do a better job with stronger communication.

    Advice to Management

    -consider a stronger line of communication with employees.
    -consider having meetings to discuss the well-being of the company.

    Pros

    - Fun Co-workers
    - Raffles for Staple Center Tickets
    - Catered breakfast every Friday

    Cons

    -Slow turnaround time for hiring replacements
    - Most departments are understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to more active in hiring more employees to replace employees that leave since most departments are understaffed and overworked.
