    I worked at Advanstar full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great employees, quiet environment, most positions encompass a variety of tasks. Management generally keeps everyone informed of new directions.

    Cons

    New directions and shifting goals are constant making it difficult to put out a high caliber product. Investment trust ownership makes for sacrificing quality for the bottom line and this leads to poor morale. Draconian views on lunch hour rules, lack of flex time when many positions do not require strict adherence to a certain schedule, and refusal to offer long-time professionals wanting to work there more than a beginner's vacation time even with a salary cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees more like valuable resources and lighten up on the rules. A business shouldn't feel like a kindergarten.

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

    Pros

    I worked on a variety of projects with some very smart people. They had some amazing editors that knew their specialties inside and out.

    Cons

    Unfortunately they downsized and made some really bad editorial decisions and the quality of the publications when down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and listen to the employees that have been there for awhile and know their audience. Content is key not an after thought.
