    I worked at M. Shanken Communications full-time


    Fun content if you're into the "gourmet lifestyle" business - wine, whiskey, cigars. The new offices are nice. The people are generally pretty easygoing and good at what they do. Office hours are generally limited to 9-5 (for WS, at least). There are lots of opportunities to take on new responsibilities. FREE WINE.


    Management in some departments can be bulky and/or ineffective. Wages aren't the highest for the magazine publishing industry, but the positive trade-off is that, for the most part, you're not worried about layoffs every few months. (RIP, Food Arts.)

    Advice to Management

    Don't just listen to employees when they are dissatisfied - help them do something to change the situation, especially as it pertains to dealing with coworkers.
