Pros

Flexible schedule, professional environment, highly collaborative environment to work in to the point that progress is slow

Cons

so collaborative that progress on large projects can be held up past the point of external clients reasonable expectations

Advice to Management

Recognize that many folks are doing more than 1 or 2 jobs and relief is needed by hiring more staff

    Pros

    Work schedule allows some flexibility, telecommuting options, downtown Baltimore location easily accessible by public transportation, global company

    Cons

    There is zero employee development and career advancement is difficult, majority of employees do not get competent training, have to work weekends that are not factored into your pay, external hires for management positions who then have little to no idea of what's going on in regards to the operating system, lack of communication across all departments on new education policies and procedures, lousy 401K plan, you quickly find out your job description is irrelevant and have to constantly make up ground on an understaffed team.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training, hire more people, have better communication across departments.

    Pros

    Pays 20%+ higher than area's market, offices with a view, quick turnover in employees, always get to meet new people.

    Cons

    Job descriptions mention relocation packages, but they never reimburse you; people are in positions that they have no business being in; yearly bonuses are up to the discretion of your supervisor; DO NOT GO TO HR FOR ANY ISSUES w/ management- they are snitches and will go to your supervisor and tell them EVERYTHING you said; departments/domains do not communicate with one another; SPENDING IS OUT OF CONTROL. Upper management doesn't care about anyone below them unless those people are messing up; no one is safe.

    Advice to Management

    Advice? Learn about your product. Learn about the departments in which you manage. If you decide not to know anything about your department, at least trust your staff who DO KNOW what their doing. If your in charge of the editors, know how to edit. If your in charge of the websites, know what html is and how to use it. If you head up the multimedia department know the difference between a video and audio file. If your in IT, know the difference between a windows file and a mac only file. Your minions do, either direct them or trust them. But for god sake dont put your 2 cents in and create 100x the work because we need to show you why your ideas are 1) wrong 2) unprofessional 3) still wrong. Good luck Laureate. I hope someone buys you soon.
