    Pros

    Most people are at the top of their game. Good support for innovation outside of normal job. Can pay well and advance if you're willing to play politics.

    Cons

    High turnover because employees usually need to fight hard for any raise or promotion. Highly political management due to clash of old and new media. Rampant favoritism and nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put some effort into retaining talent.

    Pros

    There is great pride in the brand, and you're surrounding by people who are experts in their field. There are very few people working here who simply want to collect a paycheck and don't bother with personal growth.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for advancement, and very little communication between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in corporate communications. Departments are far too siloed.
