    I worked at Bauer Consumer Media full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good working environment in general
    Great colleagues

    Cons

    Poor pay
    Too many middle managers
    Very few routes of career progression

    Advice to Management

    Invest in current loyal staff and don't just go after short term hires who leave as quickly as they come.

    I worked in a team of 13 people and 6 of them were classed as "senior" managers and only one of them had more than 1 reportee. This didn't prove to be the best ratio of staff especially when they went to the same meeting sometimes leaving only 1 or 2 team members to cover the whole bank of desk.
