Pros

Benefits are decent, although the medical benefits seem to be not as great as years past... The time off is fantastic and shorter hours are a plus (7.5 hour days, although not everyone gets them). The flex time is nice, as well. There is usually a Christmas bonus, but it has been cut back due to the economic downturn. They also offer some professional development benefits and there are a few association events, such as ice cream socials and the opportunity to play on sports teams, which are nice. Some departments have the option to work from home on some days, which is also pleasant. Just like any other place, some management is great and others are lacking (my direct supervisor is great).

Cons

Promotions are few and rare, no matter your caliber! All of the offices politics can be tricky and the atmosphere can be cliquey. As a young professional, working with ex-teachers can be frustrating because it is difficult to stop them from trying to lecture you. They aren't very open to learning technology and are very stuck in marketing to the same target market (which will all be retiring in 5-10 years). It also takes a very long time to get some requests done, as some employees seem to be in cruise control while in the office. It's difficult to stay motivated, unless you get in a position that you like right away.

Advice to Management

Management should be encouraged to promote more often, as they are beginning to see a higher turn over among the entry-level employees (when continuous hard work goes unnoticed). The company should also consider new markets, since social media can be done at a relatively low price.

    Pros

    A plethora of vacation/sick time. Excellent work/life balance and benefits.

    Cons

    Culture of information scarcity. An organization with a severe identity crisis (Are they an organization who supports educators? A publishing house? A lobbying group?). Constant reorganizations.

  2. Strong brand, weak infrastructure
