Pros

The office hours are strictly 9 to 5 and you rarely have to do any overtime, the dress code is not too stuffy and the office is in a good location.

Cons

If you are a young up and comer with creative ideas this is not the place for you at all. Although this place tries to pass itself off as a digital company the knowledge of the digital space at the senior management level is very limited. This is a company that is afraid to try new things. I believe the upper management is struggling to hold on to their jobs in a world where media is constantly changing. They need to get with the times and learn to respect those who carry the company and actually have something to offer.

Advice to Management

Respect your employees because at the end of the day they are the ones who are actually doing the work and coming up with ways to take the company to another level. Don't disguise your lack of knowledge by shouting out orders. Learn to be a "No Nonsense" type of leader and you will go far.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Nice Office Space. Great view of the water and statue of liberty. Some good colleagues.

    Cons

    Poor mid level management. Lots of politics- so you have poorly trained, inexperienced mid level managers that give NO guidance or leadership. They are simply watch dogs and finger pointers with nothing meanigful to contribute toward growth or sucess.

    The industry downturn, lack of knowledge sharing and autonomous group mentally has brought the company to a spiralling down fall. So much to the point that they are hemraging money and resources faster than they can sucessfully implement a solution that can turn things around. Management is so busy pointing fingers at this point trying to keep their high salaries that alot of good solutions are left to the waste side. They are hoping to find a "SUCKER" to buy them so they can parachute out.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about the business your in, get inovative and with the times or GET OUT!!
