What are perks and other benefits like at Penske Media?

Pros

This company enables you to be independent and autonomous. PMC hires experienced professionals, so they give you space to do your job without looking over your shoulder. You feel like you truly have the ability to affect change and to learn and grow at an environment that makes it fun to go to work every day. This is a company where you could spend your entire career. There is tons of upward mobility and the executive team is keen on hearing opinions from everyone at all levels of seniority. It feels very convivial and like there's much less hierarchy than at other organizations.

Cons

Vacation and other benefits are not as robust, but the company is actively making changes and they're now offering 401K matching.

What is health insurance like at Penske Media?

Pros

The work is fun. Employeed through COVID-19, company paid for all COVID related expenses (testing etc).

Cons

-401K matching is poor. -Health insurance isn't great. -Salaries are well below what they should be. -Zero room for growth, don't expect a raise without threatening to leave. -IT department takes 10 years to answer a ticket, and has massive blocks on the apps you're allowed to use. -HR has no idea how they employees actually feel about the 'positive changes they're making' -Editor in Chief of Variety was brought back after PAID administrative leave for negative talk to a person of color, staff was asked to move on. -I would go as far as calling the company sexist, they boast female empowerment on a C-Suite level, but little support underneath. -Upper management has no real connection with the entry/mid-level staff -Depending on which departments you enter, it's super cliquey and incredibly difficult to meet people. -Zero organization in the org chart, everyone does everything and titles mean nothing.

What is paid time off like at Penske Media?

Pros

Company's response through COVID-19 issues has been really good. They have given us a lot of communication, implemented work from home notices and suspended PTO tracking so that we don't have to worry about not getting paid if we can't work because we are sick or have to take care of kids home from school. They really try to take care of their employees.

Cons

None. It's times like these that make us appreciate how PMC treats their employees.

Advice to Management

Keep it up.
