A good company with questionable leadership.

Pros

It's a nice small company with and everyone knows everyone else.

The company leadership is currently in flux.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make decisions based on the long term, not on what will net you a quick buck.

    I worked at Cygnus Business Media

    Pros

    Great teamwork from the lower ranks of employees. Everyone had the "we can do it" attitude, not "it's not my job".
    Great customers, attendees and exhibitors. Very loyal in some businesses that are weakening or failing.

    Cons

    Disconnection with senior management and the ranks. Not a clear plan or direction as to where the company was going.
    Benefits - 401K match was taken away, salary increases were/are frozen, 4 years running.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the direction of the company (all areas, not just digital) with all employees, lay out a clear plan that everyone can buy off on.
