publishing companies are on the down
Financial Analyst (Former Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 9, 2015
Pros: downtown
Cons: old building
publications in general is a dying business. it was a good experience for the most part. things didnt turn out as planned because of politics.

You wont make the big bucks here if youre not part of the sales/management/executive teams.

sharpened my skills and moved on.

Unless you're interested in buying some old property in downtown Houston, I'd suggest you never do business with this organization.

Great learning experience
Digital Media Executive (Former Employee), FLDecember 25, 2014
Pros: bonuses
Cons: long days
Long days at work. Sometimes 10+ hours as needed
What I learned made the long days worth it. Lots of knowledge gained.
My management was very helpful and supportive.
Loved my co-workers. Although we were in competition we were a team.
The hardest part of the job was the long days.
I love learning and the competitions that offered extra incentives. i.e. ipads, bonuses, etc.

Good env but management makes sudden changes
Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 5, 2014
Pros: reputable brands, people are nice
Cons: unstable, no room for growth in the next couple of years
This is related to Digital group:

For those seeking medium & senior level positions, you should be aware the business has been going through major shifts every 12-18 months. This is not uncommon in the industry but when new management lets go of newer employees and strategy shifts suddenly, there is something not right or still in experimental phase.

Advice for new employees, get a severance package if possible, otherwise you are risking your role in the next two years.

Aside from stability, people are nice, get to work with latest tools and tech stack. Teams are sometimes overworked but plenty of food/beer/snacks and good people makes up for it.

I LOVE MY JOB!
Multi Media Consultant (Current Employee), Beaumont TXOctober 2, 2014
I found a great fit when I got hired at Beaumont Enterprise.
Management could not be more helpful, caring and understanding.
This is a demanding position that is full of rewards on a daily basis.
My direct supervisor is very knowledgeable and passes her knowledge on to us. I am so glad we stole her from Florida.

The most enjoyment i've had in a job in a long time...maybe ever!
Multi Media Consultant (Current Employee), Beaumont, TXSeptember 24, 2014
Just like any company, there are growing pains as new technologies and products arrive in the marketplace. But, one thing I have been most impressed with is that the management team is well seasoned, knows the ins and outs of these new products and is willing to train and mentor to the team members to bring them up to speed and become experts at their responsibilities. Is it a bit fast paced at times trying to adapt to changes and such? Sure. But where is it not? At least no one turns their back and everyone is more than willing to help with whatever training and leadership is necessary to accomplish the overall goals.

Start Up Feel With Too Many Mistakes
Account Executive (Former Employee), HearstJuly 23, 2014
Pros: great comp plan, flexible schedule, strong footprint within the community
Cons: internal process stinks, training is weak in terms of selling, management are great people but lack leadership that is needed to succeed
The job can be a very lucrative compensation if done correctly. There isn't a sales job I know that compensates at a higher level, however, the internal process has diminished as they have continued to implement additional steps and more of a burden on the clients, making the clients and your life harder and more of a pain.

Below-market compensation. Anxious work environment with revolving door executive team. Trying to reinvent themselves in light of declining print and online display advertising business. But they are remodeling.

Senior Project Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 17, 2014
Every week it seems someone else is jumping ship. Morale is super low and most are overwork and underpaid with no regard to work/life balance. No company culture or employee engagement.

Digital Marketing Consultant (Current Employee), Fayetteville, NCJuly 15, 2014
Pros: management, commision rates, co-workers
Cons: stress (but hey, it's sales)
Hearst and LocalEdge are both great companies with amazing leadership. This has been my first B2B sales position and I personally believe I have gained a breadth of information in both small business management, digital marketing and successful advertising campaigns as a whole.

Ad Sales & Marketing Intern (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 8, 2014
Rather than using your creativity, you tend to learn more about business. Great co-workers but does not have as much opportunities for interns to learn.
