    I have been working at Network Communications Inc full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    If you do good work, you DO get noticed. Alot.

    Cons

    Compensation raises/bonuses are sporadic due to current business model. During expansion seasons they can be sparse. But those same practices also bolster the company's solvency, so it's very worth weathering thru.

    No micromanagement. Given assignments, and then judged on the results. You had the freedom to succeed or fail.

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Network Communications Inc

      Pros

      Liked that each magazine was it's own entity.

      Cons

      Disconnected from corporate office/headquarters so wasn't run well from a business perspective and then all of the magazines were dropped after the recession.

      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Network Communications Inc full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The environment is relaxed and dress code is not enforced. You have no pressure from supervisor or tight deadlines to complete.

      Cons

      The company is based on favoritism and perceptions from your peers. Supervisors can dictate your performance and outcome, based on false evidence. The company did not foster growth or team collaboration. Every one is isolated and its a game of survival of the fittest.

      Advice to Management

      Stop showing favoritism and give good judgement on performance and social equality.

      I have been working at Network Communications Inc

      Pros

      Great team leaders and workflow, the design team is hardworking and works well together.

      Cons

      Severely outdated tech and business model. This company has been around since the 80s and it shows.

      I have been working at Network Communications Inc full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      I really enjoy the people I work with, as well as the management. The benefits have always been competitive, and the pay has been superb.

      Cons

      The work has been unnecessarily challenging at times, and very repetitious, if not a little boring. As the work moves towards an online only model, I don't really have any options available to me to move forward with the company
