    Pros

    Benefits were terrific (4 weeks of vacation from day one, great 401k match, and nice bonus package for a Media company). Senior management was highly skilled and praise was always given for a job well done.

    Cons

    Expectations can run very high at this fast paced environment. Industry is facing a steady decline and some of the titles at this company might not survive over time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat your employees with respect and be ready to handle all of the continuing changes that the publishing industry will have to face.
