    I worked at 21st Century Media Group part-time

    Pros

    Consistent work, sharp deadlines keep things moving. Coworkers are pleasant without being insistent. Responsive to vacation requests.

    Cons

    Hours can change without notice, focus frequently lies on volume of content rather than quality. Training was rushed and made the first few autonomous days error prone. Although most everyone is friendly not a lot is done to promote office camaraderie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate schedule changes better, more positive motivation and team building.

    I worked at 21st Century Media Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    coworkers are dedicated and hard working at lower levels in spite of many problems .
    working conditions are good and benefits are on a par with current conditions

    Cons

    dying print industry leads upper level management to constantly press lower levels to produce blood from a stone attitude which leaves workers constant fear and rightfully so, because upper levels give themselves raises while cutting lower level jobs

    Pros

    Avoid this company like the plague.

    Cons

    Incompetent bosses, hostile atmosphere, completely ungenerous compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell your holdings and count your bucks. Never victimize another set of employees again. Your specialties are bullying, hypocrisy and cheapness.
