    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Co-workers are pleasant, although generally apathetic about their jobs or the quality of their work.

    Cons

    Middle management in IT is clueless. They have little idea what they are doing and their hiring decisions reflect that. Salaries are low. Politics abound at this company. Everyone is fighting over scraps.

    Advice to Management

    Evolve or die. No one really cares about your product(s) anymore.

    I have been working at Highlights for Children full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My manager is the best leader I've ever worked for in my career. Overall, strong commitment to culture and very strong mission and values. Family- and life-friendly work environment. Work environment is great.

    Cons

    We are starting to move toward more current technology and practices, but has taken awhile to get off the ground. The family of companies includes several companies that do not always work together well for the good of the whole. Some silos exist but this seems to be getting better. I've had these issues at many other employers, though, so it's nothing new. Some of the reviews here are obviously from disgruntled employees and it would be much better to talk with someone currently working here to get an idea of what it is like to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to try to modernize in all areas, including products, technology and business processes.
