Too much change for the worse

Director (Former Employee) Princeton, NJ

ProsGreat products, great colleagues, interesting work. Still have the chance to be great. New news company creates an oportunity for change.

ConsHostile and suspicion-filled atmosphere and culture fostered by senior management. Little to no change for advancement. Products in decline due to NewsCorp influence - no longer the objective bastions they once were. Over-simplistic marketing approach will erode products over time.

Advice to Senior ManagementRethink choice of CEO. Seek ways to grow careers and build from within. Let the best people lead the decision process rather than the serial cronyism that has been the recent history

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
