    Loved working there!

    Marketing Manager (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsEvery 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more forthcoming with company changes.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    CMP: Great benefits, disorganized company structure

    Editor (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsCMP 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.

    ConsCMP 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 Senior ManagementTRAIN middle management better.

    Not so bad. Not so great.

    Editor (Former Employee) Manhasset, NY

    ProsBenefits 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).

    ConsVision 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 Senior ManagementCommunicate! No double speak.

    CMP- Great people to work with in an environment of uncertainty

    Sales Assistant (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

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

    ConsCompensation 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 Senior ManagementCommunicate 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.
