    I worked at CMP full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Many experienced staffs and teachers. They know how to help people just arrived to the U.S.. The most important thing is they are willing to help.

    Cons

    The locations is great, but it's an old building and hardwares in the classrooms and offices are not so "modern". However, it's clean.

    Former Employee - Editorial in Jericho, NY

    I worked at CMP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I haven't worked at CMP in more than a decade. It has since been acquired by UBM and, unfortunately, downsized significantly. When I worked there, I found my colleagues to be smart, friendly, and creative.

    At the time, there were plenty of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    I'm giving the company a neutral rating, because I haven't worked there in more than a decade. Also, I'm sure it is a much smaller, much different version of the company I remember. That CMP no longer exists is, in my opinion, the biggest con, because it was once a very good company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not applicable as the company was acquired by UBM.

    I was disappointed in the transparency, or lack thereof of what the job would be.

    I worked at CMP as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Warm and friendly staff that really seeks to help the Asian community in New York
    No politics in the office (from what I could sense)

    Cons

    There was a mix of languages and mother tongues alongside varying levels of English fluency which led to some miscommunication sometimes. It rarely happened though.
    Internship program was a little unstructured. There wasn't very much to do sometimes. But that is true of many internships.
