    Pros

    Employer was sensitive to the fact that I was in grad school and gave me time off without me having to ask when she could see I needed it.

    Cons

    As opposed to other print news outlets I've worked for were people are friendly and engage in frequent lively discussions, the environment at MSL was very weird/quiet. People didn't speak to those they sit next to everyday unless there was a meeting or they were working on something together.

    No. Just plain no. Don't waste your time.

    Pros

    Clean offices
    Free coffee
    Brand reco
    Martha is pretty inspiring (the people under her, not so much)

    Cons

    High turnover
    Upper management makes mountains out of molehills to justify over-hiring. Which really doesn't make sense, since they lay off 1/4 of the team every Christmas holiday.
    Company is unrealistic re workforce and over aggressive goals
    Most svps have "amnesia" so it's difficult moving along with projects
    Certain departments refuse to work as a team with the rest of the company
    HR will prob request this review be taken down (heard they're known for ensuring future employees are blind to the conditions here)

    Advice to Management

    See above.
    Stop working in a bubble, away from the laymen. Get in the trenches with us and try to understand your industry. Also stop fighting with your employees just so you can have your way (which is never based on numbers, only "feelings")
