At least I have a job...

Senior Editor (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

ProsLove the people.
Love the opportunity to be creative.
Like that we still have health care option (though they aren't very good).

ConsWish our HR would do more... something... anything.
Hate getting weekly announcements of new senior VPs (I think it's a one-to-one ratio between core staff and VPs now).
The bottom line is all that is important, not a quality product.
Don't always feel like I'm thought of as an adult or a working professional.
Most of us work overtime or on tasks that are not part of our official jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementResign and allow individuals with publishing experience to take over.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
