I have been working at Consumer Reports full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The mission to protect and serve consumers is as strong as ever and it's still rewarding to go to work every day. The company is in the midst of an exciting transformation.

Cons

Lack of security during a time of transition. Cultural shift has been tough on the long term employees. Layoffs seem endless.

Advice to Management

More transparency, more communication of the vision for the future.

    I have been working at Consumer Reports full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There's a real commitment to the mission of serving consumers. The industry is going through tough times, and CR isn't immune. There is some excitement in the transition and in being part of a solution.

    Cons

    As the organization is transitioning away from print and to a more agile approach to developing and distributing content, there's been some pain as there have been some layoffs. That's a shift in the culture, and resulted in hard feelings for some.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on pushing through on the transition and making necessary changes; don't lose focus on what makes the organization unique: its mission.

    Pros

    Compensation has been consistent
    Work-life balance is excellent. Senior Management has been extremely nice to me in this aspect
    Other benefits are great as well

    Cons

    Promotions are a slow process and dont have a clue how it goes!!

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent thats already inside. Though they say they are doing it, I know several people who say they have more band width to contribute more, but no opportunities
