    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    Somewhat outdated business model.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

    I loved how I was allowed to work independently. I was able to be involved in almost every aspect of the organization. They also have snacks and a pretty cool lounge/game area.

    Cons

    When I left, management was changing. That is one thing I did not like about it. The personality of the company seemed to change with every new executive.

    Advice to Management

    Act consistently. You had an atmosphere that employees loved. Try not to stray from it to be more corporate.

    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)

    Good coworkers, and a nice environment

    Cons

    Overworked and management can put pressure on employees when profits are declining

    Advice to Management

    Think about the long-term instead of short-term decisions like lay-offs to make the company look more appealing to perspective buyers

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

    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
