    I have been working at Ziff Davis full-time

    Pros

    Strong lineup of venerable publications. Fast-paced environment with lots of creative opportunities for growth. Tons of nice people and a welcome environment of camaraderie while working. The company's been on a growth spurt for the past four or five years and seems very healthy, with numerous big acquisitions. The NYC office has a beer fridge (with good beer), 25-cent vending machines, and free bagels on Fridays. There are catered parties on the roof deck every Wednesday after hours during the summer.

    Cons

    Nothing major immediately comes to mind.

    I have been with the company for about 9 months now, and every single experience has been fantastic. Management is always very appreciative of hard work and much effort. I feel like I have been recognized on numerous occasions for my hard work, and it really makes my experience working with this company awesome. I feel fully trusted by upper management on my decisions and ideas. I'm looking forward to what my future holds here!

    Cons

    Honestly, no cons come to mind. I'm very happy here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at Ziff Davis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Ziff Davis for almost three years now and have had the opportunity to learn and grow with the company. Great exposure to the AdTech and Media industry. Great opportunity to learn from industry veterans who have extensive knowledge of the industry. Plenty of opportunity with room to grow and great mentors. The people are great and hardworking. Overall, I'm pleased with my experience here.

    Cons

    I worked at Ziff Davis as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    They've got a really great team of amazing people, so I had the best mentors, and I got a lot of hands-on experience! The department I was in (marketing/communications) was also really sweet and supportive when I was dealing with the death of a close family member a month into my internship.

    Cons

    The elevator is kind of scary. I was an intern so I was pretty sheltered from the more unpleasant realities of a large company. I've got nothing negative to say.
