I have been working at Bonnier Corporation full-time for more than a year

Pros

No dress code & reasonably flexible hours.

Cons

Very flaky new CEO, recent decisions make company morale very very low, very poor employee -to- management communication, no training, many manager are not even in-house (they work remotely from out of state, ridiculous!)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring your management back into the office and make them communicate with and train your staff regularly. Focus on working with your team about project requirements and effort before making a schedule. Stop outsourcing.

    I worked at Bonnier Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are some very talented people, or at least were, before the low salaries and lack of opportunity forced them to seek employment elsewhere.
    pretty good work facility.
    good benefits.

    Cons

    -very low salaries, little to absolutely no pay increases. always claim a promotion is a "lateral" move so they don't have to give you a raise.
    -constant fear of being let go as they are very unstable. every friday for a while was scary...who was going to get let go this week?
    -didn't even supply paper plates in the kitchens! they used to, and then cutting costs here and there eliminated even the little luxuries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your employees more. pay them fairly. the low salaries only harbored resentment, making your GOOD employees feel like giving their jobs their all wasn't even worth it.

    Good company that has taken cost-cutting too far.

    I worked at Bonnier Corporation full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
