I have been working at Bonnier Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Opportunity to work with, by and large, great people with similar interests. Very relaxed corporate culture. When you meet a member of the public who knows our brands they usually rave about them and it's great to be a part of a team that influences others so positively. Entrepreneurial environment where self-starters can thrive. There's lots of opportunity for people willing to step up.

Cons

A lot (but not all) of junior staffers and long-term employees have a sense of entitlement and are not willing to do the hard work needed to make the company stronger. This negativity contributes to low morale. Training opportunities are limited and ways of doing things vary wildly across the company. People who don't actively manage their own career path could get lost in the shuffle.

Advice to Management

Continue the increased communication and emphasis on transparency. Positive words and gestures, however small, go a long way.

    I worked at Bonnier Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back company atmosphere with great products and many talented individuals who intimately know their brands providing some of the best content the industry has to offer. Bonnier understands that digital needs to be first and there are many opportunities for continued growth.

    Cons

    Unfortunately due to the economic climate, the publishing industry in general has suffered severe decline in advertising revenue. There are too many centralized departments that lead to a "one size fits all" approach and due to numerous layoffs and cutbacks, moral is terrible and hours have become longer. Salaries are lower than average but the company offers good benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Upper level managers are making decisions that have negative impact on the actual playing field. Need more back end support, especially in the digital areas.


  2. Helpful (1)

    "Company slow and not willing to invest resources to be ahead of the curve with the changing publishing environment."

    I have been working at Bonnier Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Very passionate and creative co-workers who believe in their brands. The perfect place for someone who is an enthusiast within their specific hobby. Get to work and live your hobby everyday.

    Cons

    Lower pay scale for industry standards. Expect employees to pick up additional work without additional pay.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring to many chiefs not enough indians. Invest in resources to help the company excel in the digital world. Create a long term plan instead of constantly band aiding along the way.
