    I worked at CMP Media full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Every manager was responsible training one of their direct reports to move into their position, so it was a great place to learn and be promoted.

    Cons

    Company was bought so there was mass confusion and layoffs. There was also little direction during the change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more forthcoming with company changes.

    CMP: Great benefits, disorganized company structure

    I worked at CMP Media

    Pros

    CMP Media has a very good benefits package -- IF you take advantage of it. The company allows time off for volunteering, flexible summer hours (some offices), and often supports work-from-home schemes. The emphasis is on getting the job done and done well rather than getting in done during these working hours or this/that particular way. Tuition assistance is very good. HR staff has always been astounding. Employees with 7 years' experience with the company get sabbatical. Even the layoff package is pretty sweet.

    Cons

    CMP has rebranded itself, restructured its departments, and reclassified its corporate culture so many times no one knows who CMP Media employees are any more or what they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TRAIN middle management better.

    Not so bad. Not so great.

    I worked at CMP Media

    Pros

    Benefits were great and generally it was a fun environment. I was promoted several times, and, to be honest, never worked all that hard (although there were some exceptions).

    Cons

    Vision was a overused and under utilized word. Battles developed over the silliest and most irrelevant things. You basically had to be incompetent AND stealing from the company before they would fire you--just one element and you'd linger on for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate! No double speak.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to network. The people who work there are generally really dedicated and great to work with. Very intelligent group of individuals.

    Cons

    Compensation offered tends to be less than that of competitors. Unstable work environment due to constant changes. Salary doesn't increase greatly over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees more about potential changes within company BEFORE they arise. Spend more time with your employees and less time with other senior managers.
