Great place to work, needs help though.

Manager (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ (US)

ProsThe pay is usually pretty good. Depending on which position you are in of course.

The benefits are pretty amazing, you receive 3-4 weeks of paid time off in the first year once you become a permanent employee.

You work with brilliant people on a regular basis.

The 401k plan is stellar. You become fully vested in 1 year. Thats right, one year.

ConsThe Old Boys Club mentality is quite prevalent in the company. If you didn't join the company several years ago then your options are some what limited in terms of how you can climb up the career ladder. Those who are in the club seem to have a free pass.

The company is a follower and not a leader. Meaning that we wait for something to become popular and then we adapt to it (IE blogging,hosting,etc) instead of being in the for front of the industry and developing these products initially.

Our marketing is beyond help. Our advertisements; while when they first came out were above and beyond any other companies at the time. Now they are all the same style of commercials, except there are a few new faces in them.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut out the old boys club. Make the culture consistent throughout the entire company. Develop new products and services rather then try to reinvent the wheel.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
