    I worked at Crain Communications

    Pros

    Freedom to cover topics of choice without limitations as long as other work is completed in an appropriate manner and topics are related to industry.

    Cons

    Not many downsides but as the publications industry tends to run, salary never seems to be a particularly strong point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for freedom of staff to report on things that are both important to themselves and their interests. This will present better work results on required content.

    I worked at Crain Communications

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, reasonable schedules, generous Paid Time Off. Good opportunities for internships and young journalists.

    Cons

    Opportunities for promotion and advancement can be somewhat limited, especially in the editorial departments. The company, like most media companies, is going through hard times and went through layoffs in 2009.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Crain Communications management needs to continue pursuing new media and web 2.0 opportunities, because new media is the future of the news business.
