The *worst* place you will ever work is IGN
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 10, 2018
Hostile and abusive managers. I recommend you not work at IGN.
It's a very unpleasant work env. if you work in the engineering dept.

Advancement is minimal and you will be subject to hostility on almost a daily basis. Stay away.
Pros
Bagel wednesdays, lots of games
Cons
Hostile and Abusive management

Diverse company with growth opportunities
Human Resource Representative (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 4, 2015
A typical day at Ziff Davis is very flexible and different everyday. I learned various HR functions, such as immigration, sick leave, employee relations, as well as benefit offerings.

I enjoy working with the colleagues at this company, since they are team-oriented, diverse, and fun.

Lack of Job Culture, Job Security/Advancement and Effective Communication via Management
Sales and Marketing (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 17, 2015
Very much a boys club atmosphere. Management is primarily male. They believe the role of female employees is administrative and of less value to any male counter part.

Management also lacks communication skills. Important changes to structure and teams are not communicated down the pipeline to employees until it's too late. Management also does not provide a sense of support or encouragement in the work environment nor do they offer the sense of job security.

Lastly they use employees as their personal minions to do their dirty work. It was a huge disappointment as this company has potential if they instill better values and management and diverse the company specifically within the ranks of management.
Pros
Summertime weekly happy hours
Cons
Benefits, Lack of communication and diversity in management, Lack of job security
