Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- Recognized and respected brands/titles
- Willingness to share information internally among publications
- Strong online presence and team
- Many motivated and talented salespeople

Cons

- Low tolerance for those not fitting a conservative coporate social/religious "template"
- Corporate sales and contracts benefit the company but leave individual magazine sales teams feeling superfluous at times
- Clique-ish environment at upper management levels and within corporate sales
- H.R. department is serious issues with maintaining confidentiality

Advice to Management

Bring your mindsets forward from the 1950's and 1960's and be more accepting of cultural and other diversity. Get rid of the old boy's network mentality.
