    Pros

    Decades ago this organization offered excellent security, encouragement and benefits. Talented and caring administration allowed associates nearly unlimited opportunity within the company.

    Cons

    Recent years of poor financial performance in parent company's vast holdings triggered a downward spiral in this division's autonomy. Centralizing of many departments to cut costs slowly drained the unique character of the magazine. In recent years there has been a shift away from the southern perspective, a decrease in informational content, and a trending of the publication overall to appear indistinguishable from many other lifestyle magazines. Morale in general has declined significantly among the remaining staff.
