Current Employee - IT Manager in Yonkers, NY

I have been working at Consumer Reports full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Compensation has been consistent
Work-life balance is excellent. Senior Management has been extremely nice to me in this aspect
Other benefits are great as well

Cons

Promotions are a slow process and dont have a clue how it goes!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize talent thats already inside. Though they say they are doing it, I know several people who say they have more band width to contribute more, but no opportunities

    I have been working at Consumer Reports full-time for 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 for 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.
