    Pros

    Over about 15 years there (2008-2013), most of it as a Copywriter, I found the Creative Department to be well-organized, efficient and generally pleasant. Fast-paced, so not a place for "slacking." Quite a bit of variety in work, since we did catalog and web writing, video scripting, emails, promotional elements.

    Cons

    The company has since (2014?) been acquired and run by a different ownership, Northern Tool and Equipment. It sounds like they have gotten a bit "tighter" and not as "family-oriented" (meaning, letting people go rather roughly, versus the old "family feel.") But I know people still there who don't have any distinct complaints.

    Advice to Management

    As suggested in "Cons", I think one has to be mindful of offering a stable, good feeling, as the Guide at least used to have. I think a company gets stronger performance, loyalty, etc. when the employees feel "a part of things." Don't know how true that is/isn't now.

    Close to home, traffic was horrible.

    Cons

    Management is always getting replaced with new management. Unreliable business practices.
