    I worked at Source Interlink full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close knit friendly atmosphere with room to work and no one standing over your shoulder. Opportunities to take on more and do more.

    Cons

    No longer in business, but it didn't have to be that way. Top layer of management was too top heavy and over paid.

    Advice to Management

    Mismanaged resources, there was a need for consolidation and or partnerships to keep company going, but management did not act soon enough.

    I worked at Source Interlink full-time

    Pros

    Great loyal, hardworking employees in over 60 locations throughout the United States.

    Cons

    The day the decision was made to close the doors was the most gut wrenching feeling I have ever felt. Not for myself but for the 5,000 hardworking employees that showed up everyday and gave it their all for Source. As an executive team I felt we had let those men and women down.

    Pros

    I was with the company for years and relocated from NY to Bonita Springs. I had great PTO time. It was a great place to work until upper management started changing.

    Cons

    You couldn't move up if you didn't hang out with the clique. There was a HUGE favoritism towards certain individuals that really did nothing. It was like pulling teeth to get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    None the company is gone due to lack of knowledge from higher ups.

    I worked at Source Interlink full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was able to learn about the magazine industry and how not to be a CEO (amazed to the poor decisions made with Time Warner).

    Cons

    The leadership from the Bonita Springs was a confused cliquish group of people. Sadly, people were promoted based on who they were friends with vs adding value to the organization which ultimately lead to their downfall.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that you are not the end all and that customers rule the day. When you try to tell customers who they need to do business, well that client will find business partner that will work with them. The other issues is that too many of the ‘leadership’ people were stuck in 2007, and the world is a whole lot different. I would stay away from anyone that was in a leadership role at Source Interlink as most were not qualified to lead a team at Burger King.

    Pros

    People here are great. Very friendly and open to others.

    Cons

    Upper management just gave up instead of fighting for the life of the company. In this industry, you need to fight for survival and they just gave up.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair.
