    I have been working at Brainerd Communicators full-time

    Pros

    Easy commute. Comp is pretty good - but don't let that fool you.

    Cons

    The owner is perhaps the most ruthless, cold-hearted person I have ever met. And while that is good when negotiating, it's awful for employee morale. This is one of the strangest atmosphere's I've ever worked. There is an "inside circle", and if you're not a part of it - and not many are - you'll likely be shown the door pretty quickly. I've seen it happen too many times. There are a few nice people in the office, but there's a general feeling of mistrust and disconnect.

    Advice to Management

    Stick Diana in a locked room in her mansion in Greenwich and don't let her out.

    Pros

    Pay is quite satisfactory and there are occasional bonuses.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for minorities. If you are not white or asian, you will really need to wow them.

    Advice to Management

    Less nepotism and rewarding popularity; more concrete performance tracking and advancement based on merit.
