    I have been working at Hanley Wood full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic atmosphere; relaxed corporate culture; little bureaucracy; rapidly changing--and that change offers opportunity; some great teams, but strength of managers varies; some smart individuals in key positions trying to make the best of a tough publishing environment

    Cons

    As with many media companies...Rapidly changing and being reorganized, and that brings staff cuts, which in turn affects morale; little job security, particularly for editors aged over 55--this demographic is of little interest to corporate (a fact stated by VC at 2013 MediaNext show, NYC); heavy, unrelenting workload; decreasing concern for editorial quality (focus is on quantity) over past few years; generally pays below market rate--with some hand-picked exceptions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More and better communication with employees would go a long way toward boosting morale; top exec would benefit from showing genuine concern for employees--little sense of "we're in this together"; much more an "us and them"--"them" being the minions--mentality
