    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, management is a bunch of screw offs so they could care less what you do

    Cons

    meetings, apathetic management, boring, building is old, stinks like goat piss. Workload is small yet management keeps hiring people to keep a high body count.

    Advice to Management

    Get a life. Realize that there is more to a career than a paycheck and somewhere to go during work hours. You suck the life out of professionals with your meaningless meetings.

    Pros

    PennWell's brands are well-respected. You can be proud of the publication you represent. PennWell has about 40 brands in a variety of businesses and technologies. PennWell is located in Nashua, NH, which is a pleasant area. It is also close to Boston. The Manchester airport, which is about 20 miles away offers many connections. Telecommuting is also possible.

    Cons

    Publishing industry as a whole is in decline. There have been massive lay-offs in the past year. When I started there, I was told that the magazine was growing, but found out after I started there that massive layoffs had occurred just a few years prior.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace new technologies and approaches to operations.
