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

    Pros

    I love the mission of the company and I love working for a non-profit. We have some really great, super smart longstanding employees as well as some new hires that have really raised the bar. We have just had our best year financially in quite some time, which has been really exciting. We are revamping the look and feel of the magazine and it looks truly amazing, other plans are underway to do the same with our website look and feel. We have upgraded out technology platforms and our general location and facility is really nice. I love coming to work every (well, maybe not every, but most) day and seeing all the changes-we were looking and sounding really tired and sad and its fun to be part of the change.

    Cons

    I think anytime you have an organization going through change some people can be resistant to it, so we have to deal with that issue. Change is hard but we need to do it to move forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not all perfect here-I think generally the mid level managers are pretty solid and some of the more senior managers are doing a great job, but some need to improve their ability to work together toward a common goal.

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

    Pros

    The mission to protect and serve consumers is as strong as ever and it's still rewarding to go to work every day. The company is in the midst of an exciting transformation.

    Cons

    Lack of security during a time of transition. Cultural shift has been tough on the long term employees. Layoffs seem endless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency, more communication of the vision for the future.
