I've worked for this company for 9 years and have no plans to leave. I was miffed at some of the negative reviews. I guess this is more of a place to complain than to praise. That said, it is why I'm here on this site—someone who is applying for work said we had negative reviews and I wanted to check it out. I'll give it to you straight: I've been part of this company's growth for the past 9 years. We have three divisions, two of which are magazines—I work on one of the magazines. Publishing is full of tight, demanding schedules and deadlines. To thrive here, you have to be willing to push hard when it's required and coast a little when you can. It's not for everyone. I personally thrive in situations like this. If you are looking for regularity and a high degree of structure, this may not be for you. On the other hand, the environment here allows you to grab the reigns and run. If you have a little ambition you will do really well here. I'd take some of the criticisms with a grain of salt. I've worked at other places—some where I got paid a little more—but none where I have learned as much or grown personally. The CEO has been good to me, and I to him. That's how it works.
Growing Pains: We've had them. As we get bigger (nearly doubled since I started) challenges have come up. The two biggest are finding good people to fill needs and work-space. Next month we move into brand new building.
