    I worked at Advance Publications full-time

    Pros

    If this is the only job you can get, suck it up and take it, but get out as fast as you can.

    Cons

    Lack of professional ethics; substandard quality; blatant favoritism and cliques in office; refusal by senior management to deal with troublesome mid-level managers who run quality employees off for a litany of reasons, none of which are professional in nature.

    Advice to Management

    GROW BACKBONES.

    Pros

    You will write and edit a lot, which builds your skills.

    Cons

    Advance Publications on their newspaper side seem to be getting away from hiring full-time employees with good benefits and salaries to contractors and youngsters who make just barely $30K a year in the high cost New York metro area.

    Advice to Management

    You can't project quality if you don't have it inside.

    Pros

    Employees are offered great benefits, are generally treated well and are very loyal to the company. Employees work together to make the business succesful.

    Cons

    Management has a somewhat paternalistic approach in the way they treat their employees, which does not always serve the best interests of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Although the company takes great pride in managing its businesses in a very private manner, one recommendation would be to adopt lessons from other private and publicly held companies as they work towards recovering from this recent economic downturn.
