    Best job I've had

    Web Developer (Former Employee)
    Des Moines, IA

    ProsAugust Home is a great place. For the publishing industry as a whole, the last few years have been especially tricky, and I think August Home has done a great job staying relevant - something other companies are struggling with. The work environment is fantastic, and considering the owner is involved in basically every decision, things actually do get done and come out at a pretty great quality.

    ConsSometimes things are slow to get done, because the owner is so involved in all aspects of the company. His ideas are good, and quality is always good, but pulling the trigger is sometimes difficult so there is some 'hurry-up-and-wait', but where isn't there?

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to get experience

    Associate Editor (Former Employee)
    Des Moines, IA

    ProsOverall, a good place to get your feet wet. The work itself is excellent exeperience.

    ConsThe top leadership is poor. Communication is poor. HR is not helpful to the employers, but acts on the whim of the owner/CEO. Dysfunctional.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet someone to run the company who doesn't own it, and who knows how to lead and deal with conflict.
