    Recurring layoffs and unstable leadership

    I have been working at Federated Media Publishing full-time

    Pros

    They pay well, are well-respected in the industry, and have nice offices.

    Cons

    Layoffs happen like clockwork each year, making everyone on-edge. The leadership is all over the place, with people coming and going (and coming back and going again) often. The people can be nice but are actually cliquey. They blatantly value the programmatic side over content, which was their bread and butter.

    I worked at Federated Media Publishing full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked in the Publisher Development department of Lijit Networks, which was then acquired by FedMed. Overall, very positive. Good working environment. Competitive, but also supportive. Very loose, positive culture that was welcoming of new ideas.

    Cons

    During the transition from Lijit-> FedMed, there was some confusion as to what the acquiring company actually did. Whatever, keep truckin'

    Genuinely invested in its customers, people and bettering the industry

    I have been working at Federated Media Publishing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Every employee I have come into contact with feels some sense of pride or ownership as it relates to delivering a quality advertising program to BOTH a brand AND the audience.

    Leadership is focused on innovating content marketing - which is good because thats the industry FM started and continues to lead by developing proprietary ways to show performance and ROI

    Culture is all about the people. FM will take care of you if you do the same by truly investing yourself

    Everyone is allowed to have an opinion, everyone is friends, everyone "gets it" and works toward the same goals almost organically...because they want to...not because they are being told to

    Cons

    Not that I can think of

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do NOT stop innovating
