Pros

There is a good community atmosphere at Future Publishing and it is easy to make friends with colleagues.
The offices are nice and well maintained, so you feel very comfortable in your environment.

Cons

It's pot luck on what type of manager you'll have and many of them are not interested in helping to develop their team. The job role of 'Editor' is considered an illustrious position where you don't have to do much work, and is generally only earned by people who have been in the company many years, rather than young up-starts who may have new, fresh and innovative ideas.
There is also a 'boys club' atmosphere on many magazines, which makes women feel intimidated and pushed out.

Advice to Management

Management need to appreciate the work that their team does and recognise it. Often many editors take recognition for work that isn't theirs and won't pass on praise to others.
