Loved working here...but it is in decline

Editor Person (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsFun and interesting work
Fun employees always up for happy hour
Competitive compensation
There is an opportunity for advancement, depending on your skill set

ConsA few select employees who wield waaaay too much power and are waaaaay too full of themselves
Too bloated at the top. Everything went to hell when the former CEO came back... which was odd since I never heard a single nice thing about him the entire time I worked there
Also, the company is bleeding it's most dynamic employees and keeping weary ones who have no vision
Mgmt ignores REPEATED complaints about managers who cause good employees to leave over and over and over. It's offputting

Advice to Senior ManagementFire yourselves and hire people who care about publishing

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
