Pros

Flexible schedule, good benefits. Can be very interesting work.

Cons

Long, long, long hours are the norm. Certain departments (Editorial) are in constant fear of layoffs. Layoffs never seem to get the true dead wood. The culture of layoffs and down-sizing does not bring out the best in the workforce. The general consensus is that Mike Walsh is very ill-suited to his job.

Advice to Management

Mike Walsh, please move on before you drive this business completely into the ground.

    Pros

    My supervisor was very encouraging and seemed to enjoy helping me grow as a professional.

    Cons

    There were some lay offs while I was there. It seemed some legal editors were being replace with hourly contract workers fresh out of law school.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management actually discouraged me from entering the legal editor field, stating that it was contracting. Maybe the management could have talked about alternative careers within the company?

    Pros

    Steady work. Nice office buidling in Ballantyne.

    Cons

    Sold out to First Advantage who off shored jobs to India within months.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees who produce quality results instead of selling out to the highest bidder that will take jobs from the USA.
