    Pros

    Back in the Dennis Publishing days, it used to be a great place to work, where editors could actually create interesting content. It was fast and furious and the reason men's magazines even still exist today.

    Cons

    Major turnover, lack of direction and horrible ownership has left the magazine nothing more than a vanity project for its owner. Not a factor in today's publishing world, which is a pity given Maxim's strength in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Get someone who knows how media works to run your business -- and then stay away.

    Pros

    Good technical people, with attitude to win. Some managers hired were strong leaders.
    Used to have strong stock compensation and startup feel.

    Cons

    Too dependent on Samsung. too much emphasis on integration without long term vision.
    Lost it's niche, a small company that tried to be a big company but is now neither here nor there.

  8. Wish it could be a 5 star, But Not since we lost Jack Gifford!

    Pros

    Good People, Large company, good benfits. Nice building and work environment. Maxim Univ allows you to better yourself.

    Cons

    Not so good annual bonus. keeps going lower and lower every year due to budget cuts. Scary everyday you go to work not knowing if you have a job. Frequent job cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your old timers & founders that started when Mr. Gofford worked in the office.
