    Pros

    Friendships I made while working there is one thing that kept me there for so long

    Cons

    Company is downsizing, not the company it once was, upper management is horrible,

    Advice to Management

    Getting rid of seasoned employees who have been with the company a long time is the wrong way to go, they have experience and loyalty to the company,

        I worked at Bauer Media full-time

        Pros

        The only pros are free pizza and ice cream on Fridays.

        Cons

        It was a terrible experience working at this company. I would never recommend it to anyone. Everyone is overworked and not happy here. I have also heard horror stories from almost everyone that works here. We are treated poorly and it is not acceptable.

        Advice to Management

        Take a look at the higher up people you have in power. They don't know what they are doing, and don't know how to manage a team.

        I worked at Bauer Media full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Decent pay and free food sometimes

        Cons

        Cons? Where the heck do I start. From the moment you start working here, you'll notice how disorganzied this company is. Senior level editors are completely unqualified and disorganized, and it makes it impossible to do any of the work you are assigned. I spent most of my first 6 months here crying because I would physically dread commuting into NJ for a job I hated so much. When you try to tell top editors about any...

        Advice to Management

        Fire everyone and start over. There is literally no other way to fix this terrible company.

        I have been working at Bauer Media

        Pros

        I love being able to create content, work with people I really like, and have the opportunities Bauer presents. its flexible and its fancy. My team makes my job unique and fun. I realize my experience may be different than others, but i love my job.

        Cons

        Its always a challenge to get paychecks on time. Sometimes it takes 6 weeks to get paid. The infrastructure is a bit fractured and you need to have your internal relationships in tact.

        Advice to Management

        Speed up payment and don't cut pay. You've been #1 for a reason. You have to pay to keep the people that help get you there. Reward loyalty.
