Pros

Solid company with a long history, and the culture is set up to respect the individual workers

Cons

While the top-level senior management is great with their vision, communication and support, the upper middle management (VP-level) all seem too focused on protecting their turf than to be good leaders.

Advice to Management

Realign to remove the redundancies across magazines. Remove the digital team as a separate unit and have the sales & biz dev teams work under the magazine titles and/or the integrated group.
