    I worked at Wenner Media part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Worked with some of the best people in the design industry. Everyone works hard and it inspires you to push yourself. They throw parties on Fridays. Summer Fridays are real! People are friendly. I was never micro managed, I just did my job and felt very relaxed at the office.

    Cons

    Very hard to get a job there. Need to know someone. Long hours on production day.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sell your brands to companies like AMI who go against everything Wenner stands for.
