I have been working at Vance Publishing full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Has a good branded name in the markets they cover. Use to be a great place to work but vast majority of Managers who made it a great place are gone.

Cons

Hi job turnover. Poor Management. Way behind other publishing companies in the area of digital advertising.

Advice to Management

Sell the business to someone who can make the company work like it use to.

    Pros

    It's a fast-paced environment and in some cases I do see upper mangement caring about their employees. Vance is usually the place people use to gain experience before getting a new job.

    Cons

    Communication is a mess. Salaries are low for the industry. Forget about weekends or evenings because you have a job to do. Praise is very hard to come-by. There's no teamwork in the bulding, and some management positions are cocky and need to be brown-nosed in order to gain favor.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and improve workplace morale, and stop donating the holiday bonus to charity. Connect departments and offices for a better understanding of what they do. Supply praise generously. Make it a positive workplace instead of what it is now.
