Good company that has taken cost-cutting too far.

Pros

Laid back company atmosphere with great products and many talented individuals who intimately know their brands providing some of the best content the industry has to offer. Bonnier understands that digital needs to be first and there are many opportunities for continued growth.

Cons

Unfortunately due to the economic climate, the publishing industry in general has suffered severe decline in advertising revenue. There are too many centralized departments that lead to a "one size fits all" approach and due to numerous layoffs and cutbacks, moral is terrible and hours have become longer. Salaries are lower than average but the company offers good benefits.

Advice to Management

Upper level managers are making decisions that have negative impact on the actual playing field. Need more back end support, especially in the digital areas.

    Pros

    Some great titles and entrepreneurial environment.

    Cons

    Completely disorganized. Pay is terrible so they have junior people selling and running magazines. Niche magazine publisher so they know nothing about lifestyle publishing, which is why their lifestyle magazines are at the bottom of the industry. Swedes are different from the US and kept the previous CEO in the position to long to run the company into the ground with nepotism of employees who weren't forward thinking. Maybe Swedes want to get out of their terrible US investment and sell off the division.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO has a big job and is still an enthusiast magazine publisher. They need to see the macro picture and stop thinking with their wallet but highly doubtful. Some of these magazines are destined for the cutting room floor without alot of brain power and investment.


  2. Great people, but little opportunities to advance, and company's financial troubles are very apparent

    Pros

    Relaxed and flexible atmosphere. Hardworking and friendly people. Very family oriented- so most employees leave by 5:00pm to be home with their families.

    Cons

    Most employees have been working there for years and are very set in their way and procedures. This factors into a lack of opportunities for advancement/ raises.

    The company's financial troubles is very apparent. There's been a lot of lay offs/ budget cuts and it's affect employee moral.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more involved in mentoring/ showing appreciation for the entry level employees. Need to be more communicative of changes and infrastructure and the reasons behind it.
