    I have been working at Target Media Partners full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you have kids, raise them yourself with little help, there is no job more considerate of my life than this one. I've spoke with my bosses boss and beyond.. all very nice. i make more money than anywhere Ive ever worked. if one of my three kiddos throws up, I can go pick them up .. no questions asked. it is fast paced, but if you do your job you are rewarded greatly. These reviews speaking of a dying industry and clueless mgmnt. is bullsh*t. TMP does way more than print and has some of the best partnerships you will find.

    Cons

    None come to mind yet.. and I'm a woman, I can usually always find something to complain about :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out who your current employees are who hate their job and get rid of em.. there's too many good people out there looking for work who would love the opportunity to work here .. and not complain about it.

    Former Employee - Pre-Press in Lansing, MI

    I worked at Target Media Partners part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people who work in the office and in the field are the best group of people you will find. Working in the newspaper industry you will learn a lot about deadlines, working in a stress filled environment and constantly changing priorities.

    Cons

    Wages are not consistent in the same department. Raises are never available. No growth opportunities. Paper is a dying industry and they are unwilling to change or create new media growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raises and keeping everyone on the same payscale in the same department. Be more aware of emerging trends and use them to your advantage.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere in the corporate office. Excellent health benefits. Flexible working arrangements.

    Cons

    Terrible vacation time---offices will frequently have unpaid holidays (New Years Eve, etc). Salaries are significantly below similar companies.

    Print advertising (the company's main source of revenue) is dying. The online programs are overpriced and just a collection of other companies' services. There is nothing unique about what they offer in that regard.

    This company has changed hands quite a few times --- it probably will not exist in 10 years.

    No one really seems to be in charge. Executives manage their little corners of the business, but there's no one providing any vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some leadership for the company. How do you stand out from competitors? What is your overall strategy? None of that is being communicated.

    I worked at Target Media Partners full-time

    Pros

    They give you a salary and then pull it back. Then they tell you if you don't sell you'll be fired. And if you sell they still fire you.
    Cheap and doesn't care.

    Cons

    Managers who have never sold a thing. Into print, losing proposition. Digital is outsourced, not a winning proposition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue
