    I worked at CJ Affiliate full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Incredibly intelligent staff - A lot of promotion from within - Compensation is strong - Healthy think tank

    Cons

    - They're behind their competition with tech and they know it - Their engineering team is about 10% of the size it should be - Outsourcing client-facing tasks to foreign countries who have little to no knowledge of the industry of common US business practices - Rely on their overworked teams to train new employees while keeping up with their book of business - Very few client support resources for the primary client success team to rely on helping paint the full picture. AKA - One team is expected to do WAY too much. - A lot of clients who treat their team like an agency (very demanding, little appreciation) vs an extension of their business

    Cons

    Legacy platform slows innovation. Many strong, independent minds sometimes lead to difficulties in coordinating efforts.

    Pros

    Benefits, Ability to work remote as needed

    Cons

    While affiliate marketing is a rewarding channel and CJ has the potential to be a great work place, your job success and enjoyment is dependent on the management team you are assigned to. If you work for a particluar Director, be prepared for weekly interagations and beratings. She works diligently to spew negativity and pessimism, undermining your objectives, creating unnecessary obstacles, establishing unrealistic demands, and inspring demotivation and burnout. The sign of a great leader is to cultivate greatness within the team through respect and motivation, and unfortuntely, one Director lacks these necessary skills. Despite a mass exodus from her team, senior management won't listen to employee feedback. CJ will continue to lose valuable employees as long as terrible leaders are at the helm.
