Approves of CEO

I have been working at PennWell Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Work/Life balance is not a problem. Very relaxed work environment.

Cons

Work is very much day to day. Very little planning for improvement. Company is very segemented across brands which leads to internal competition amongst groups. This can be good, but overall it does not encourage synergies/consistency for the good of all.

Advice to Management

Take some time to look at the company as a whole. Consider the value in promoting PennWell as an organization, not just individual brands. This will foster employee's company pride and permit them to work together to gain traction in bringing value to the overall organization.

    Management needs a cohesive direction and plan for the company. Fix the technology issues. Be honest with the employees and stop all the unnecessary drama that you create.

    Pennwell is a good place to work if you don't mind getting paid to be bored

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, management is a bunch of screw offs so they could care less what you do

    Cons

    meetings, apathetic management, boring, building is old, stinks like goat piss. Workload is small yet management keeps hiring people to keep a high body count.

    Advice to Management

    Get a life. Realize that there is more to a career than a paycheck and somewhere to go during work hours. You suck the life out of professionals with your meaningless meetings.
