    Pros

    TVGuide definitely has a casual environment for the right person.

    Cons

    High turnover, layoffs are not a plus at this place.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is pretty laid back. Some departments have tremendous room for growth, but others do not. Good salary, benefits, 2 weeks paid vacation.

    Cons

    I wish I was challenged more. The pace is also a bit too slow for my liking. Other than that, it's a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Increase responsibilities over time, especially when people prove to be excelling at the tasks they are already doing. That's it.

    Pros

    Interesting job, good salary, decent benefits

    Cons

    The industry as a whole is very tricky in the modern era and I do not believe that is being kept up with.

    Advice to Management

    Research, study, talk to everyday people, quit pencil pushing.

    I worked at TV Guide full-time

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to take risks and learn. A 60 year old brand with a startup mentality. Especially on the digital side, very smart VP team that works hard to grow the brand and create new opportunities. They have a history of promoting within.

    Cons

    Negative association with the brand. Network and digital have difficulties separating their identities with the magazine, which is assumed to be an outdated, older demographic.

    Advice to Management

    Network needs to invest in the brand to retain, grow and win new clients.

    Pros

    Laid back, great people working with you. It's

    Cons

    Quite a few layoffs happening regularly and they like to hire lower level workers for a lot less than competing networks.

    Advice to Management

    The company as a whole needs to rebrand itself. If things keep going the way they are, the network has less than 5 years before shutting down.

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work and it's really gone downhill

    Cons

    Constant layoffs and extremely high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Not too much they can do since we have an equity firm owning us and only interested in short-term and selling for profit
