    I worked at Affinity Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company provides volunteer hours to give back to the community. This is now pretty common but still worth giving them credit for.
    Pay is good in certain departments but comes with a huge price that drains your soul.
    Most jobs in the Camping World retail and customer service pay $9 to $12 an hour which is fine for young people but many are 30+ years old with kids to support.

    Cons

    Very much a spam organization. Members are called and mailed constantly. CEO and President run the show from a distance. It matters very little what senior management thinks or wants to do. It only matters if they don't want to do something asked of them, because then they are quickly replaced. Many people have left the company for lower paying jobs due to the lack of confidence in CEO and having to endure decisions that made no business sense and cost the company money and made the work environment miserable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO- Glass Door shows a 15% approval rating with your employees! You are more interested in starting up reality shows than learning from your employees that have good honest feedback. You are a bully (do what I say or get out) and a one man show and I don't respect the lack of leadership and lack of value you have for good people who are working in fear of you.

    I worked at Affinity Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flex time, great boss, treated like a pro.

    Cons

    Psychotically cheap publishing company that insisted even new titles and publishing projects make instant profit. Short staffed, no opportunity for growth, inept upper management, did not want to give you the tools to succeed. Gross mismanagement killed off one title after another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    React more quickly to a changing market; invest in your product and people; update equipment and hire support staff as needed. Don't force editors to be web designers, promoters, and marketers.
