The quality of your manager largely determines your experience

Reporter/Researcher (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsGood benefits, work environment accepts casual attire, interesting work.

ConsMany managers are inept, have weak egos and take it out on their staff. Check out the lawsuits filed (and won) for racist promotion policies. Few opportunities to advance within your title. Nepotism determines promotions. Very low level of diversity at the top. Top-heavy salaries yet it was always the hardworking, innovative and committed low-level employees who were frequently let go by the dozen. Management is clearly out of ideas with regard to digital, and will not acknowledge younger/more junior staff members' ideas regardless of how terribly their own projects fail.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your more junior staff people with ideas about digital. Stop using the old model of promotion based on whose father golfs with management, and instead promote people based on their work ethic, value to the brand ($) and ambition and dedication. Get rid of middle managers whose negative attitudes toward their own staff belie their own insignificance. Realize the real benefit of diversity (not just racial, also economic, ethnic, background/lifestyle, age, gender, etc.) - fresh ideas that can be backed up by market research.
