Advice to Management

Listen to and support the people who have experience and knowledge; treat people like people and not like animals. If you're going to bother to bring in talent that know what they're doing, let them do their jobs and don't let your insecurities ruin the potential of the business.

    Pros

    They are reasonably flexible with balancing work life balance. Some good individuals across the board

    Cons

    The management doesn't seem to have a real goal or direction in mind. They don't seem to be able to adapt to changing media market. There is a lot of greed, people are very 'I' minded and don't want to work as a team.

    Advice to Management

    They need to really look at how they communicate to employees. They need to get a real idea of what there strategy is and get some research to back it. The finger in the air approach is not working. Plus there is no point pushing sales when the market is tanking. That is the time to rethink ideas and hunker down and train up.
