    Former Employee - Mailroom Associate in New York, NY

    I worked at Brant Publications full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Definitely a good starter if you're looking to start out in a real office environment with an experienced staff to sponge off from. Majority of peers are definitely team players. Location near NYU is great for students.

    Cons

    upper management lives in the dark ages. So much paper work that can be easily avoided without disrupting the chain of command. A lot a side task that have nothing to do with your job description along with constant micro management. Plus, threatening termination every time there is a set back isn't exactly a positive motivator. There are also a lot of unpaid interns filling the roles of what should be regular paid workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitely needs to ease up on micro management. Should move up to the digital age a little, all that paperwork processing is too inefficient for all the time sensitive task.
