don't work here

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Business Wire full-time for more than a year

ProsYou don't have to take your work home with you.

ConsManagement treats employees like children. The level of pay is low, yet the level of responsibility and dedication that is expected is extremely high. There is no incentive to do more than the minimum required, and there are few if any opportunities for advancement. I don't believe I have ever worked for a company that has a lower level of morale than this place.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should take some time to walk the floor and get to know the people who work for them. It is not hard to get a measure of how low morale is by doing this, and it wouldn't take a lot of heavy lifting to improve things, even if only a bit.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
