    I have been working at American City Business Journals full-time

    Pros

    Keeping up with the times to drive online presence, great benefits, competitive pay, actually growing revenue, supportive of employees

    Cons

    Main downside is you don't have as much autonomy as you might in a smaller company – everything has to be approved through corporate HQ

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eyes on the future to keep us relevant
