    Pros

    Use to be a great Media Publishing Company with vision, positioned to be the best in it's field a few years ago.

    Cons

    It now makes horrible decisions, abuses it's employees like work horses and make horrible management decisions, and worse yet they are unfair and their integrity is also questionable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics of caring about your employees which will bring your customers back. Get back to the basics of caring about what is in the best interest of people first before the dollar and then revenue will rise.

    Former Employee - Advertising Sales  in  Las Vegas, NV
    Former Employee - Advertising Sales in Las Vegas, NV

    Pros

    Was the top media company in Vegas now it has slipped. Paid better than most media companies back then in 2008-2009 but not sure now. They have trained the best writers, designers and media sales people working in Las Vegas today. Too bad they then sent them to their competitors and made it clear those employees are not welcome back. They built the best media titles in Nevada and then ran them into the ground.

    Cons

    People come out of there as "abused children" for lack of a better analogy. It's an environment of favoritism, fear, general malaise and disempowerment. They make top down decisions that seem to make no sense. Compensation structures changed as frequently as 3 times a year. They are constantly churning upper management usually replacing incompetence with people even less qualified. They have hired publishers (and above) who have never worked in media much less ran a media company. In a small-market, relationship-driven media town they operate like they think their customers are beholden to them often completely disregarding their needs and wants. They ignore obvious market trends. They neuter their writers. As I said above they love to hire the best, train them to be better and then drum them out, lay them off or otherwise escort them right to the doorstep of competing media companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the days when GMG was an environment where people could succeed. Customer relationships come first. When they are happy you can be happy. Until then there will be a continued decline in your revenues and you might get to a point where you are too far gone to save.

    Pros

    benefits package, location, new building

    Cons

    Recent change in leadership, reorganization twice in the past two years, both based on recommendations from two outside consultants, neither from the Las Vegas area. Poor management decisions. If you like working in a mens locker room, it is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees and what they have contributed before you make changes that affect livelihoods. Stop throwing your money away on consultants and listen to people who have been their for years.

    Pros

    Positioned to be an industry leader if they will utilize their advantages. Has the potential to be a great family business.

    Cons

    Unreasonable deadlines, workload has 5x'd in the last few years , upper management not listening and utilizing internal skills and advice. No real focus or vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop listening to outside consultants and listen to you your internal experts.
