    Pros

    Most of the employees are great, both interesting and fun. The perks are great as there are often tickets to all types of events around town on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Constant deadlines are the nature of the business making for a high stress environment. Extremely low pay and demands of corporate machine kick down the morale even further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a dire need to create processes where none exist and to streamline existing archaic processes. Seattle Weekly still has great potential but is losing ground due to its antiquated corporate style.

    Pros

    Lots of free tickets to events and shows around town.
    Lots of events to be proud of.
    Management funny, fun to be around.
    Always understand personal emergencies, give you time off without pressure.
    You can make a lot of money if you're there for a long time.
    Kenny Stocker / Wendy Gelgien / Upper management were competent, great to work for.

    Cons

    Lots of cold calling.
    Commission payments not as high as other companies in the same industry.
    Salary base is a little low.
    Promotions, bonuses not awarded fairly at times.
    Department relationships are not optimal (departments seem like strangers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reporting to more than one manager is tough.
    Raise the commissions if possible!
    Be fair about awarding bonuses - should be strictly based on performance.
