    Pros

    - Media Company
    - A lot of employee benefits
    - A lot of employee engagement

    Cons

    - All about which manager you get - can make or break experience here
    - The mentality of "Everyone wants to work for us" leaves salaries on the lower end
    - A lot of employees are overworked and under appreciated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement good direction for your lower management to follow -- they need it.
