    I worked at Parade Publications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid office environment. Has all those classic features from those big American companies you can imagine. 70 years industry history means something and you can tell from their place.

    Cons

    The company hires people that even doesn't really work daily. People are lazy here and the only point you can sell to your customer is the ads position based on a poor , small and tiny website. The company hires more than 100 people but indeed it just may need 30-40 and that will be enough for their business.

    Don't expect you can earn some big success from this company. Eventually it's just a company that delivery free yellow ads paper to your home address with your daily newspaper in the last 70 years.

    Pros

    HR very "on top" of things---can speak with them safely and most confidentially, work associates friendly and helpful, yearly reviews very thorough, excellent salariies and full benefits, fair vacation time.

    Cons

    Depending on who you are working for at the company, employee reviews can be very detailed. There is a three-month "probationary " period at the beginng of employment at the end of which time, it can be decided that things aren't working out (or that everything is great).
