The following perks were offered to me

Suggestions for improvement

  • Cool it on the layoffs and be more transparent about major company news/developments. Support your entry level staff and make it worthwhile for young talent to build a career with the company by being more generous with raises and fostering a sense of community/stability.

What I like about the company

The content you get to work on is exciting, and the brand is nostalgic. There are some really great people there, and the company's resources are solid. You can grow a lot because there is so much to be done and few people to do it.

What I dislike about the company

Management is reluctant to promote, the CEO makes about 2000x more than the average employee, and they're willing to take advantage of employees if it means they can save a buck or some trouble.
