Reputable company with good mission and products.

Management doesnt always look out for client's best interest. It is too hard to fire bad people.

    It'll be perfect... once we figure out how to get the magazines to understand that the web isn't a magazine.

    Pros

    The tech department is great fun to work in. The team is a comprised of good mixture of people, the projects are high profile and interesting, there is plenty of room to grow and learn, and there are certainly a lot of challenges to keep you on your toes.

    Cons

    Because most of the senior editors and site directors came from a magazine background (being a publishing company and all) there are quite a few misconceptions about technology and what works (and doesn't) on the websites. This can lead to frustrations, but it also can be an opportunity to teach others how to better use the web as a distribution medium for content. We're still growing the online presence, and as such there are some hurdles to overcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT management is pretty consistently good, but they often seem to lose out to the more senior print people who aren't quite as web savvy. If upper management trusts IT to earn an increasingly large piece of the advertising revenue, then you should also start trusting us to know the best way to do our jobs.

    Pros

    Benefits packages and work/life balance.

    Cons

    The magazine business in general isnt doing too well, so raises are few and far between. Senior management does well financially, and with bonuses, but as far as the worker bees -- we need some more honey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication to employees.
