    Good company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ConsHigh volume minimizes in-depth reporting.

    Very mixed bag

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you are in the right department (vertical), you can have a very positive experience.

    ConsIf you choose the wrong publication to write for, you will be in trouble. One vertical in particular has a lot of problems. Success is not based on how well one does one's job, but how well one flatters the head of that vertical--stokes this person's ego. The company has a lot of potential--why does it waste it on a certain "leader" who's all talk/bluster and little action?

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the heads of the verticals and don't allow yourselves to be influenced by bluster and fast talk.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Smart people, lousy attitude

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSmart, aggressive people who are generally very good at their jobs. Opportunity for advancement is there if you work hard.

    ConsGood health insurance but otherwise very weak benefits. (Only two weeks of combined vacation/sick time in total!) Arrogant attitude among middle and senior managers despite textbook management "happy talk."

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease vacation benefits if you haven't already!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Amazing company if you work in the right department

    Mid-Level Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat prospects for extremely talented people. Liberal office culture that works for those who are self motivated to make the most of their position. You get to learn a lot of things and touch lots of systems.

    ConsMany in leadership are completely in over their heads. Their excuse on being so terrible has to do with their corporate "shareholder" who strangles this once great company. Learned helplessness. The ones in leadership who actually work hard for their employees end up demoralized too, which hurts the rank and file. Too many personal relationships that trump accountability. Often feels like one must be sneaky to get something accomplished.

    Very bad IT and operations leadership. Lots of great people in the department who scratch their heads at the micromanagement of lack of trust given to them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop relying on personal relationships as a management technique. Employees can see right through it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
