Pros

The publisher was inspirational. The editorial staff were innovative thinkers. The PR, marketing and sales and warehouse staff were excellent at their jobs.

Cons

The owner of the company was not the kind of person I would wish to work for again. The sales team wasn't optimized efficiently. The location is out of the way for anyone living downtown or in the west end.

Advice to Management

Be respectful to staff. Be more transparent with employees about performance measurement, evaluation and compensation ranges. When certain staff are known to be challenging to work with, address the problem instead of letting it grow.
