Pros

Work/life balance is very good with normal hours, on-site restaurant and cool learning opportunities (classes in woodworking, cooking, marketing etc.). They pay well enough for the area. Taunton is doing decently in a tough industry/economy and, while not a household name, is respected in the publishing world for high quality products.

Cons

Not really in the NYC/lower faifield county orbit. Small company with many long-term employees makes for a close environment (maybe that's a plus for some?).

    Pros

    The culture, compensation, and benefits are all very good when compared else where. The HQ location is also located in a very picturesque location.

    Cons

    The business is in transition to be more digital and the management change process has not been handled very well. The company is also very top heavy in management with numerous agendas and no clear direction from the top.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better and run this as if it were your own business.

    Pros

    Great content, nice people, great potential

    Cons

    There is no clear vision or revenue model to compete on a digital environment. Apps and mobile strategy are ignored. The resources are too small for big change. New and old management do not often share the same cultures and overall people are not held to high performance standards.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a new revenue model and invest in getting there. Set clear goals and align the company around those goals and manage to those goals.
