Interesting brands, interesting coworkers, strong wellness program, diverse magazine portfolio allows interaction with interesting topics, intradepartmental teamwork among co-workers is often strong

Rampant cronyism, general lack of transparency, failure to attract and maintain top talent and a general sense of panic regarding job security

Employee development and open communication about corporate initiatives, particularly for younger employees, will help groom the next generation of employees and prevent mass exodus of quality employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefit Package. Outperforming peers in a difficult market

    Cons

    If you can afford a Nanny this is the place to work; if not.....keep looking if you want to attend those extracurricular activities your children are involved in.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to those who actually do the work; without them the company would not exist! Would it really be so terrible to give up some of your bonus money and implement an all employee profit sharing program or all employee bonus program to reward the 'little' people?
