Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Low work load, mindless work. Nice gig if you want to do a 9-5. People are nice, work is easy, simple business model, very primitive.

Cons

Frustrating for those that want to drive change and process improvement. This is a publishing company that still has not fully embraced the digital age.

Advice to Management

Hire some fresh blood at the highest level and drive change.
