Fun work but supporting a dying product.

Systems Administrator (Former Employee) Dayton, OH

ProsLoved the work, loved the people.

ConsDisconnect from Sales mangement and reality of the product.
Always 5 years behind.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire the right people and get out of the way. Lower expectations of dying products. Prices should not increase every year, prices should decrease as print products are devalued by perception of the public. It is not balanced, too many books. Cut to one to two books in major markets and make them relevant. Studies show digital is the leader, not print, although print is needed and has value it cannot demand the value in dollars that it once had. Like an aging sports star that wants to keep playing print costs has to lower as a player signs for the veteran players minimum.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
