    Pros

    the people and company culture as well as the benefits

    Cons

    the people - if you're not at the top, its very hard to get noticed and recognized for your work

    Advice to Management

    look within more often. you're missing out on a lot of talent just because you dont make the time to get to know people

    Pros

    Great benefits with unique features, decent pay, and mostly good employees. Very family friendly and encourages a work life/family balance.

    Cons

    Your experience will vary widely depending on which location you are at. Corporate management is very slow to react to real crisis. Some markets have very, very poor upper management which has a trickle down effect to all departments and personnel. Do your research on local management before accepting a position.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in innovation and put real resources behind keeping up with your competition.

    Pros

    I worked here for nine years and would have stayed if the magazine I worked for hadn't folded. I did not meet one mean person the entire time I worked here. The work-life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    The health insurance got very expensive. I worked on the editorial side, and it was hard to move up. Staffs are VERY lean.

    Other employees were friendly and no one was micro managing me.

    Step up the communications to clients and agencies to show the vast resources and creativity available here.
