    I have been working at SourceMedia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Having worked at SourceMedia for over 5 years, I can honestly say that things have changed for the better. From a great working environment to lots of choices for benefits. I've been at other large and small companies, and I cannot say enough about how this company is moving ahead of the competition.

    Cons

    The only cons are that there is annual no cost of living adjustments and the 401k match is small. I am hoping that this will improve.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on the 401k match.

    I have been working at SourceMedia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When I read some of the old negative reviews on here, it reminds me of how different the SourceMedia of 2017 is compared to 5+ years ago. It is basically a different company - from the senior leadership to the direction of the company. The company has become leaner, it has made investments in the business, and it makes concerted efforts to show its employees that it truly cares. I believe the company is on the right track and it has made many wise decisions to accelerate its transition from a print publisher to a digital media leader.

    Good benefits (medical/dental/vision, tuition reimbursement, health club reimbursement, small 401k match)

    Positive, friendly culture where employees genuinely care about each other.

    Cons

    Lack of annual cost of living increases
    Small 401k match

    Pros

    Fantastic people. Really intelligent and professional. Won't find that everywhere

    Cons

    Lack of communication within departments ensures things don't run as smoothly as it's supposed to

    Advice to Management

    Rather than introducing new technologies/software that only senior management has validated, i'd advice garnering insight also from the EVERYDAY users of these new technologies/softwares

    SourceMedia has definitely been moving fast when it comes to new technologies! Two of our most significant recent projects were the deployment of a new customer data platform (CDP) and a new CMS/UX... More
