    Pros

    Great office space. Tons of brands. Casual, fun environment. Management is friendly. Work/life balance is valued and I never felt it was jeopardized. Great benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    Hard to move up the ladder or to different departments. It is a very large company so you can often feel insignificant. No bonuses. Commission only a VERY recent thing

    Pros

    Current Technology & Product Engineering (formerly IT) employee Not many. Location for now. At least we are moving downtown instead of NJ. Although IT (yes IT Colin) will be greatly reduced and shoved under the stair case based on the floor charts shown to the company. 4 weeks vacation (if you get to take it) with no rollover! Summer Fridays. Oh wait. Those are gone. 401K with reduced matching. Health/Dental. Was sold as better now we are separated from Warner. That's true if you are single.

    Cons

    Obvious disdain for the U.S. engineering team by CTO Colin Bodell. He is more interested in updating Yammer with his photo ops with celebrities than the welfare of the U.S. staff. This is made abundantly clear by his frequent trips to Bangalore where he takes employees out to dinner for personal chats. Also, I have personally witnessed him doting over a single Bangalore employee who was visiting the U.S. and asking what they thought about the U.S. staff and operations. Don't get me wrong. I work with the Bangalore team every day and the people I deal with are good, hard working, intelligent people. But so are the U.S. engineers. How about asking us what we think is wrong with what is going on in the U.S.? Not all of us are left overs from the previous Time Warner owned debacle. The plan is to greatly reduce the U.S. team and bulk up in Bangalore definitely and Seattle most likely. All under the cover of 'follow the sun'. The idea is sound but it's implementation is lacking. Absolutely no chance or consideration is being given to the NY team. Clueless upper management in IT. Yes, Colin, I referenced that forbidden acronym. You would think to be a VP or SVP of a technical area you would have an understanding of the technologies in that area. Nope. Not here. Backstabbing and finger pointing is rampant among VP and SVP level. Only the negative is ever accepted. No chance is given to enlighten the misinformed because the negative is all that is accepted. Motivation is getting a little rubber duck and your name on a poster. No work/life balance if you actually get work done or care about what you are working on. The employees only source of good information seems to be gone because Keith J Kelly from the NY Post has not written about the impending layoffs yet.
