    Pros

    - Great coworkers who are passionate about what they do - Casual environment - Ability to work on a variety of projects - Bagel Fridays!

    Cons

    - Confused leadership, one month it's one direction and the next it's something else - Top heavy with management - Tons of talented people without enough resources to do really amazing stuff

    Advice to Management

    Transparency about what's really going on within the company would help tons.


  2. I learned a lot from one person, and that was a blessing. Otherwise, it was a lonely place to work.

    Pros

    Vacation time (although many scrambled to take it before they lost it b/c of too many accrued days), free basic health plan and good paid option. They play up Friday bagels as a benefit. But I don't buy that. Best was the week b/w christmas and new year's off. Everyone's gone. no guilt.

    Cons

    Too much information shared among too few people. People are very territorial about what they share with whom. Seems competitive within one's own dept. No delegation. No room for advancement. Company behind in digital initiatives and has had a number of layoffs as a result. Magazines are all silos. No common

    Advice to Management

    Delegate. Share. Include. Drop the posturing. Pay more attention to online.
