Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Des Moines, IA

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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.

No opinion of CEO

    Not the "Family" Company it would have you believe it is

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Des Moines, IA

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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?

    Doesn't Recommend
