I have been working at Consumer Reports full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

There's a real commitment to the mission of serving consumers. The industry is going through tough times, and CR isn't immune. There is some excitement in the transition and in being part of a solution.

Cons

As the organization is transitioning away from print and to a more agile approach to developing and distributing content, there's been some pain as there have been some layoffs. That's a shift in the culture, and resulted in hard feelings for some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on pushing through on the transition and making necessary changes; don't lose focus on what makes the organization unique: its mission.

    I have been working at Consumer Reports full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The mission and the people who work there. I still have hope for CR, but perhaps not during my tenure there.

    Cons

    poor morale, coldness of some senior leaders who truly don't care about the staff. Recent reorganization was poorly executed. Some changes were drastic and not thought through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk when it comes to trust, civility and respect. Start from within and gain back trust of the staff.
