    Decent place to work

    Marketing (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA (US)

    ProsThey treat their employees well, decent salary, great benefits and a lot of room for growth within the company. The offices were nice, and clean and had good maintenance. Good IT department, and up to date equipment.

    ConsIt's a platform/company that is constantly playing catch-up, and after multiple attempts to reinvent themselves, the outlook for the site to regain a positive reputation in the industry is highly unlikely.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
