    I have been working at IBT full-time

    Pros

    Great vision and focus for the future. Solid family owned business with approachable and kind leaders.

    Cons

    Cannot think of any negatives that are not already identified for change. Very good initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the experts hired to drive change and encourage collaboration - these things are currently in motion, which is great.


  2. "Knowledgeable sales expertise with strong customer focus. Culturally and technologically, it's still in the stone age."

    I have been working at IBT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Potential for personal growth and career opportunities/ promotion from within.

    Cons

    Technology, I.T., cultural mindset ("We've always done it this way"). Slow to adapt needed change.

    Advice to Management

    Attract millennial generation to replace retiring baby boomers. Invest in I.T. and needed tech/ operational upgrades.

    Pros

    Great family owned company. They are always able to help with the questions you may have. Enjoy working for IBT.

    Cons

    I worked at IBT full-time

    Pros

    Well organized, generally friendly, slightly higher then average salary.

    Cons

    Long inconsistent days with unexpected overtime, groups didn't grasp "big picture" and only knew what they were supposed to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Disseminate information better and keep employees in the loop. Better training opportunities would help both employees, skills and morale.

    I worked at IBT full-time

    Pros

    Mostly 9-5 hours. Decent amount of PTO time. Some flexibility in general with working around personal hours you may need to take. Freedom to browse internet enough to apply for new jobs when you realize you need to get out while you can.

    Cons

    Google this company, all the negative stories are 100% true. Integrity & Reputation do not matter when you goal is not to maximize profits for owners but rather to be a cash front for something else. Employees are a means to an end.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be arrogant, lack of transparency and all around being less than truthful about your purpose isn't going to last long when the majority of your employees are JOURNALISTS

  8. "No management"

    Pros

    Editorial freedom and ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved with the brands. You have great editors but they lack resources and the overall goals of the company.
