    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn about the technical publishing world.

    Cons

    Everything is financially driven. There is no credible mission statement or focus for the company beyond making the owners more money. There is no interest in soliciting the view, opinions, ideas, and contributions of the employees and staff. It is pretty autocratic where employees must do as they are told, even in situations where the employees have ideas to save costs or increase revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are not interested in hearing any advice; they have made that very clear.

    Pros

    There used to be a lot of events and parties that were really great and showed us we were appreciated.

    Cons

    The management was chauvinistic at times and their inability to make the magazine a viable entity was inexcusable. They could have kept it afloat but bad management and cost cutting without considering the effects killed it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe there should be a review of how the management performs and the way they speak to and treat their staff. Instead of yelling at people and berating them then laughing about it later which I saw happen on two different occasions.
