Most enjoyable is the benefits.

Great company but there is stress involved
Communications Specialist (Current Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMJuly 14, 2017
It's a great environment and there's a lot of communication between the teams. You still have to be able to work without much assistance and really mange many tasks at once. This is a stressful job because of the number of press release you have to proofread an format. Earnings every quarter is always the busiest time but there's usually a celebration after earning period is done. There's room to advance and plenty of opportunities for training and earning certificates.
Pros
Flexible breaks, good environment, benefits
Cons
It can get stressful

Customer Content Specialist (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHDecember 29, 2016
This is a customer focused role. I do not wish to provide an intense description. Phones, emails, live chats etc. A bit ridiculous that this is required. Thanks, indeed, for forcing me to create this answer.

Office is very Clique-y
Media Relations Associate (Contract) (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJFebruary 24, 2016
I've been here for almost a year, and only 3 people actually know my name, and one of them is the woman who hired me. The pay is also quite pathetic for the work I do. I'm under contract but the project I feel is deserving of at least a competitive salary and benefits.
Pros
strict 8 hour days, I come in at 8 and I'm out by 4
Cons
office is very clique-y no one talks to me

Well paying career for Albuquerque
Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMNovember 19, 2015
PR Newswire is a great opportunity for communication professionals in the Albuquerque area. The pay and benefits are great, and the office culture in Albuquerque (specifically) is incredible.

The sales management's policies are rough, if not borderline insane. Every year, you will work harder for significantly less money. If you're not ok with that, don't bother applying. The morale fluctuates based on the season, with the new year always being low, as they don't release sales goals for the year until March or April -- with the expectation that you will hit the goal in January and February without knowing what it is... The technology is antiquated, and most of the issues arise around billing, with no solution to fix these dated issues.
Pros
Generous vacation time, benefits, pay, incredible employees, great management in Albuquerque
Cons
upper management disconnected from reality, illogical policy implementation, mixed messaging

my eclectic role
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 23, 2015
Working at A+E Networks has allowed me to take on a myriad of different roles every day, if not every hour. I am the department’s operational strategist by morning, the treasurer analyzing budgets over lunch and the internal communications and relationships builder by evening.

Productive
Typesetting Specialist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 13, 2015
A typical day consisted of fulfilling Graphic Design requirements as needed, for major publicly traded corporations seeking to file of financial documents with the SEC .

Software requirements included Xyvision Parlance Publisher (XPP); Illustrator; Excel; Microsoft Word; Photoshop; Math Type.

Co-workers were generally very helpful and supportive.

The hardest part of the job was keeping abreast of the large quantity of varied jobs, each with their unique characteristics that had to be solved rapidly, before filing deadlines.

The most enjoyable part of the job was constantly learning new cutting edge techniques that increased speed and efficiency.
