    Pros

    News can be exciting -- when you aren't working 12 hour days, 5 days in a row

    Cons

    There's no appreciation for long hours and hard work. There's always something wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your people and don't hold them back

  2. "Family company" that doesn't care about family

    Pros

    It's a job that will pay your bills. And look good on your resume. Some great colleagues. But it's hard to get attached to anyone/anything given the constant layoffs, reorgs and buying/selling of mags.

    Cons

    So many hearts broken here. So many layolffs. Management is really good at pretending to care, but when push comes to shove, you're on the outside looking in.

    Advice to Management

    Put the family back in this company. Reward the worker bees. Return to team-building. Look at the turnover within departments. Not everything/everyone can be bought and sold.

  3. Very large company with a corporate culture

    Pros

    The Health benefits are good, and employees may invest in the company.

    Cons

    They rely on the Ignite Automation system for news coverage which limits flexibility. They don't value experience and education as much as they value who they are familiar with.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of those employees willing to go the extra mile. Use employees for advice on creativity.

  6. Great company

    More time-off would be nice.

    Pros

    An easy going staff
    A Great building
    Your gym membership can be reimbursed, up to 400 dollars...
    Good healthcare plan
    Stress free work environment
    Paid Vacation

    Cons

    Hard to move up
    Low pay
    The Building itself was nice, but in a weird location (beaverton)
    Management is clickly, and play favorites (I was not the only person who thought this)

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within! This was a huge problem, and probably lost them a lot of money.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, generally employees have good values and positive environment

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth, limited budget restricts opportunities, turbulent media industry creates unpredictability

    Put resources towards current properties, not enough man-power to make things function well

    Pros

    -Quality of life. I work late during peak RFP times, but other than that I can leave at 5-5:30pm each night.
    -Pleasant work environment

    Cons

    -Salary/raises are limited to the upper echelons.
    -Print and digital aren't integrated
    -Departments keep getting downsized...

    Advice to Management

    Acquiring new companies is great for the company overall, but what about the existing employees? We often find out about these after the trades write about it. I know a lot of employees are frustrated with this as we've gotten abysmal raises over the years.
