    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.

    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.
