I worked at Publishers Clearing House full-time (More than a year)

Pros

* Great benefits
* Wonderful people
* Excellent work/life balance
* Flexible hours

Cons

* Minimal (if at all) upward mobility
* Management has lost the ability to think and act
* Meetings, meetings, and more meetings
* Misallocated resources
* Unwilling to take risks or adapt
* Unrealistic fiscal expectations

Advice to Management

Your core audience is dying. Literally. Pouring on more of then same emails/ads/tv promos is not going to magically garner in the younger crowd.

Allow people to champion ideas from below and pitch them to senior management. The financial outlook will be sunnier (and less fictional).
