Great company to work for with wonderful work-life balance, however, not a lot of room for growth.

Pros

Work-life balance is great with awesome benefits. They have a great maternity program and offer quite a few extra programs (like exercise classes or seminars) at no cost to the employee.

Cons

Not a lot of room for career growth. Job description does not reflect the position and we do not get credit for the work we are doing by senior management.

Advice to Management

Review growth options for all employees

    Pros

    Mostly smart, capable associates work here. The company is steadily growing and is one of the largest, most successful media corporations in the world.

    Cons

    People often work longer than a 40-hour week for no extra pay or bonus. There is little encouragement for personal growth. The content they produce is targeted towards a specific demographic and, because the formula has proven fiscally sound, there is little reason to rock the boat and try new things. Taking chances is rarely encouraged.
