    I have been working at Penske Media

    Pros

    Nice office, pretty crazy environment considering there are branches working in fashion, gossip, entertainment, tech, and even B2B web products. One can learn a lot by networking with people internally and thankfully there are opportunities for that within the office and at work-events. The people on my team are all great and supportive so you can always rely on your colleagues if you need help.

    Cons

    Some employees can be very reserved and not interested in interfacing with people in other departments. Parking garage an absolute nightmare, can't even fit nearly every employee in the building. Expect to do much more than what you were hired to do. HR needs to establish better tracking system for those being paid hourly.

    Pros

    PMC has an impressive portfolio of iconic/historic brands, but company is also not afraid of new endeavors and challenges. I've been working here for over 2 years, and there's never been a dull moment of doing the same thing over and over again because the CEO is always looking for new areas to grow the business. With so much growth and expansion comes new opportunities, and PMC does a good job of trusting its employees to implement the vision. I'm lucky to work with a group of very talented people that inspire me every day. The company also is very proactive in building a great culture for its employees by having great team-building retreats, holiday parties, and volunteer programs. There's also free breakfast and snacks in the well-equiped kitchen. Who can complain about that!

    Cons

    I think the company is growing so fast that some processes were overlooked and have not been completely implemented. They currently have no mandatory yearly review or cost of living increases. I do think Jay Penske is listening to his employees and is working hard to get a better system in place within the company. They've already added 401k matching and increased the PTO amount within the last year.
