    Pros

    Great pay for an entry-level editor, great health and vacation benefits, and work can be rewarding depending on personal expectations and attitude

    Cons

    As typical with most large companies, there were poor upper-management decisions, including unrealistic sales expectations, counterproductive editorial policies, and budget cuts that resulted in job losses

    Advice to Management

    Treat editorial staff like adults and give them the tools they need to fulfill their job duties in the most effective and efficient way possible
