I worked at PennWell Corporation

Pros

benefits
travel opportunities
incredible personnel
supposed potential for advancement

Cons

As mentioned by others; management is stuck in a warp of doing things the way they have always been done. That will kill the business; creativity is not valued and is evident by reactions to new ideas. Uber upper management is a joke and laughed at by employees. The building does smell and will strangle you if you breath deeply.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop with status quo; take a look at opportunities and ideas that you have overlooked. Growth by acquisition will only work for so long.

    I have been working at PennWell Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, good people, opportunity for worldwide travel, trade shows and conferences

    Cons

    Stuck in a print model when rest of the world is converting to online and digital. Not to say they don't try or pretend that they try to move away from print but some of the long-timers are resistant to the change, especially since the model at PennWell is such that they make more revenue from print sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out a lot of the old guard in management and hire new, fresh, innovative employees that can advance the company forward.
