You can make it work....

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGenerous time off around the holidays. Lots of flexibility for telework. Helpful, dedicated support from often overworked and understaffed departments that work with multiple brands and business units (creative, HR, production, ad operations, circulation/list management, IT). Depending on your department, there’s plenty of opportunity to work creatively and independently. Great co-workers.

ConsFrozen pay raises lowers morale and sends hard-working, ambitious people to greener pastures, making it hard for managers to keep the department going. Recruitment, training and managing a new employee is a huge time suck (though with HR doing recruitment, it’s not nearly as bad as it used to be). Still, turnover wastes the time of the remaining employees who have to pick up the slack. Too-frequent layoffs or job eliminations, while often making more work for most everyone remaining, tends to weed out people who were in the wrong job (sometimes through no fault of their own) or underperforming. That’s very disheartening on a personal/team level but probably good for the company, as it focuses manpower and raises the bar for new hires.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward good employees with more money, not just an inflated title. Encourage more cross-brand, cross-department, cross-business-unit communication. Bright, creative people could solve their own problems (and find innovative solutions) if they knew who to talk to for insight and advice. Communicate the company strategy (even as it changes) to all employees and encourage questions and feedback. The people who actually do the work have good ideas, and actively listening and trying out some home-grown ideas might make employees feel like more than fixed costs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
