    I can't think of any right now , maybe I can come back when I think of something good to say .

    I haven't had a raise here in 8 years . I am now working at just above poverty level . The insurance you are forced to take is garbage . The only thing good about it is prescription prices . But for the price I pay for this insurance is ridiculous . Management cares little about there people . You are just a number here .

    Take care of your people .

    Pros

    Laid back office atmosphere.
    Great location in Downtown Detroit (Unless they ask you to work at the Sterling Heights Office)
    Great place to learn what not to do in business/life.

    Cons

    You'll have more managers then a character in 'Office Space'.
    No career advancement, make sure you like your starting salary.
    You'll never be aware of a project until the 11th hour.

    Advice to Management

    It's very simple, just start listening to your employees. Seriously, they CANNOT make your company worse then you have.

    I worked at Detroit Media Partnership full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a well established organization with many good people still working there and it feels like a family working in the lower ranks. An expert with unique skills who does not rock the boat can work there for many years.
    Relaxing office atmosphere in most departments, some management is willing to have flexible work schedule.
    Company is owned by a large corporate parents and is a great place to learn what not to do in management if you are looking to hone supervisory skills by osmosis.
    Company is trying very hard to be innovative.

    Cons

    Lack of competent leadership in technology and advertising fields.
    Cronyism on the top levels of management.
    Not competitive compensation for high tech jobs. Very limited growth opportunities for people who work hard, new responsibilities are assigned as more people are leaving. Big media company with small IT and Newmedia departments makes it harder to get job done right.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the exit interviews, ignore the rants, venting and learn how to extract useful information from what people are saying.
    Evaluate why so many talented people are leaving.
    You still have right people for the job who are in all the wrong places; find them.
    Stop chasing irrelevant competition and SEO rankings, instead, concentrate on serving and doing professional job for your customer by refusing to make bad looking ads.
    Stop changing your identity every year, marketing company has to master marketing themselves first.
    CEO and some VPs should hold their breath and collect their paycheck or consider to step down in order for the company to move forward.
