Great senior management, lacking talent in the middle.

Senior Editor (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsSolid company with a long history, and the culture is set up to respect the individual workers

ConsWhile the top-level senior management is great with their vision, communication and support, the upper middle management (VP-level) all seem too focused on protecting their turf than to be good leaders.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealign to remove the redundancies across magazines. Remove the digital team as a separate unit and have the sales & biz dev teams work under the magazine titles and/or the integrated group.
