  2.  

    This company is being run into the ground by its owners. There are many loyal customers but no support.

    Pros

    The independent work environment in the circulation department is enjoyable. Daily deadlines make every day different and exciting. There are many opportunities to learn new skills and hone problem solving skills.

    Cons

    Little to no support from administration. Any investment in the company is poured in to the digital side of the organization, leaving print media blowing in the wind. The writing is on the wall for anyone who works in circulation and the administration won't admit to anything, won't follow through with requests and deny rampant rumors until the absolute last possible minute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change comes from the top down. If you want to improve your customer base you have to show that you're willing to commit to making a better product. Simply passing the cost on to the customer and the carriers, who can afford it the least, is going to run this company in to the ground. You have to develop loyalty not only in your customers but your employees as well.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
