Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Decent benefits. Salary comparable to other publishers. Great "in the trenches" relationship among staff.

Cons

Skeleton staff, so everyone is doing two or three different jobs. Continually acquiring, launching and marketing products they can't support, so stress level among staff is high. Divisions that are supposed to work together simply don't communicate.

Advice to Management

Slow down on acquisitions and take care of business. Treat your staff like human beings, not machines.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Some really talented, dedicated, creative, and smart people. Smart products.

    Cons

    Media is a dying business, and content creators are not particularly valued. In fact, you are made to feel like you're lucky to have a job. For awhile there was a constant cycle of layoffs, followed by hiring contractors or others at lower salaries. Managed with what I'd call a new world old-boy network. Hard to advance unless you're accepted into the fraternity.

    Advice to Management

    Um, good luck?
