    I worked at SHOP.COM full-time

    Pros

    My work was easy and I was rarely expected to work overtime hours. Some people were great to work with, but others were extremely unprofessional.

    Cons

    Management in Greensboro has a lot of problems and puts a lot of unfair pressure on the CA team. Employees are helpless and have no protection against the whims of management. In-office management is either overly involved or completely uninterested for the most part. Very little room for career growth within the CA office, especially for non-technical roles, even though it was promised to me when I started.

    Advice to Management

    Value and invest in your hardworking employees so they won't leave within a year or two, creating high turnover and problems for those who try to stick it out.

    Top down- narcissistic executives running a complete scam (pyramid scheme). Unrealistic expectations and unprofessionalism run rampant from the executives.

    Pros

    Cutting edge mentalty. See a thought turn into realty is very exciting.

    I have been working at SHOP.COM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonably flexible hours and fair pay. Good team environment on the local level, collaborative where management seeks your input. Opportunities for career growth if neutral. Used to be really great and supportive. Local management is great, working side by side with you.

    Cons

    Continuous integration of parent company has caused some frictional changes in work atmosphere. Less options for working from home, as opposed to being treated with accountability as done previously. Fast pace schedule on project turn around. Increased work load and push for merging with parent company work systems.

    Advice to Management

    Trusting and providing for your employees brings loyalty and respect.

    Pros

    You get to work with some really smart and dedicated people. The management in Monterey is great. We are listened to and we get to apply latest technology.

    Cons

    The owners of the company like to show how much money they make (photos of their yacht, etc.), which is great. But then they nickle and dime us - we have to buy our own tissues and pens and paper. The guy who stocked the coffee/tea was too expensive so now we rely on office management to make runs to Costco (and since it is not their priority, we run out of supplies). No back up development computer, so that if yours breaks, there is no down time - just grab the new one and hit the road running. That kind of stuff.

    Also, suddenly they decided no more working from home, even once a week. This has put a BIG damper on moral and will make it hard to attract talent from the near by, but not so near by Silicon Valley.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of and respect your employees everyday. The little things count a lot.

    Opportunities for growth exist daily and the environment for being an entrpreneur are endless

    Focus on the main thing keeping the vision clearly identified.

    Pros

    Execs have been there a long time and are well liked. I received bonuses for good work. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Stock options did not pan out, was difficult to get help to get all setup initially, bit hard to figure out who was in charge.
