    It feels like high school all over again. Terrible management and the higher-ups are so incompetent with the overall strategy. I was so happy to leave.

    I worked at Morris full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None as sales are no longer part of Morris

    Cons

    The company has a total void of leadership. No one is willing to take the reins and build the product.

    Advice to Management

    If you want a better company hire better people. Billy Morris should be ashamed of what he did.

    I worked at Morris full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Worked with a great bunch of people

    Cons

    Parent company had no idea how to run a business; the ship was/is sinking and unfortunately they have no idea who to hire to steer the ship.

    Advice to Management

    You still have some good employees; listen to them. Close the offices that are unable to stop the hemorrhaging.

    I worked at Morris full-time

    Pros

    A great place to work if you like working with print publications, one of the few left.

    Cons

    Raises are almost non-existent and the emphasis is on sales not the quality of the product.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your products and your people. You have many wonderful, dedicated employees that are ground down by the ever increasing workload and lack of raises.

    I worked at Morris full-time

    Pros

    Individual field offices have a lot of autonomy. This is good if you have an involved local manager that leads by example.

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management. Unclear, disjointed mission.

    Advice to Management

    Need to frequently, and clearly communicate direction and then lead by example. Get involved.
