"roller coaster ride"

Disapproves of CEO

Pros

benefits
travel opportunities
incredible personnel
supposed potential for advancement

Cons

As mentioned by others; management is stuck in a warp of doing things the way they have always been done. That will kill the business; creativity is not valued and is evident by reactions to new ideas. Uber upper management is a joke and laughed at by employees. The building does smell and will strangle you if you breath deeply.

Advice to Management

Stop with status quo; take a look at opportunities and ideas that you have overlooked. Growth by acquisition will only work for so long.

    I have been working at PennWell Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My team is amazing. We support each other and everyone is amazing about helping each other though I definitely feel like we got lucky with the people we have. I worked in a different sector of PennWell for the first 6 months of my employment and the moral was pretty terrible.

    Benefits are reasonable.

    Good managers have made all of the difference.

    Cons

    Working at PennWell is like trying to teach an old dog new tricks.

    Though it could be said for corporate companies in general, PennWell seems to be particularly stuck in it's ways.

    Advice to Management

    I struck gold with my group.

    There is transparency and complete support on this end of the company but I have witnessed the "holier than thou" attitude multiple times from other higher level employees.
