    Pros

    There are no real consequences for your actions, so it doesn't matter if you reach target or not, they probably won't bin you.

    Cons

    Highly political run by people who have been in the busines for years and years and have no idea of how things are done elsewhere. This makes them arrogant and narrow visioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compare Bauer to organisations other than EMAP to get a bench mark for standards & areas for improvement. Look at the broad base of companies within the UK to see sales standards and productivity management standards. The fact that something is new to Bauer does not make it unique or innovative.
