Pace Communications is a constantly evolving workplace, jam-packed with smart and creative content experts.
DESIGNER (Current Employee), Greensboro, NCAugust 21, 2014
Pros: creative atmosphere! wellness programs and a fun committee to help with the work/life balance.
Cons: deadlines and tight budgets, which are part of the territory, of course.
A typical day at work includes working with editors, the publisher and clients to design and get approval for departments and features. We operate with tight-knit teams on projects, in a pretty relaxed but focused atmosphere, getting content moving through and keeping clients very happy. The best part of the job is working with very talented photographers and illustrators world-wide. The most challenging part of the job is wrangling the content into a monthly schedule, with deadlines that don't budge.

Great colleagues, so-so top management.
Editor (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCFebruary 16, 2013
Pros: great colleagues, pleasant work space
Cons: archaic management practices, so-so benefits & compensation
The day-to-day work environment here is the best -- the place is full of talented, collegial people who take their work seriously but not themselves. Top management, however, is a bit clueless and detached, leaving the troops sometimes wondering what they're thinking, focusing on the wrong criteria for evaluating staff performance, and failing to consult with the people who actually know what's going on.

The company is led by a smart woman who's very people-savvy when it comes to making business connections but not so much when it comes to her own staff. Also, counterintuitively, she's not that much of a friend to her female employees and not very supportive when it comes to work/family issues.

Customer Service, Team Leader (Current Employee), Greensboro, NCJanuary 13, 2013
Pros: easy work
Cons: short breaks, sick time
Nice place to work at, but at times really busy. 5 years with the company I have learned alot, management is great to work with and easy to get along with, the co-workers are friendly and good to work with. I don't believe that there is anything hard about the job. I love the work I do, its easy but time consuming.

A company in transition from its Glory Days
Publisher (Former Employee), Greenbsoro, NCAugust 16, 2012
Pros: great work environment, fun co-workers, challenging, progressive
Cons: limited advancement, so-so benefits
A privately-owned company, in business since the early 1980's headed by a very accomplished, charismatic woman who is well-regarded nationally for her volunteer work and political connections. Generally a very good work environment, filled with young, progressive career-starters, sprinkled with older professionals who have been there "since the old days." The core business of the company from its inception until recently was contract publishing, producing custom magazines and other content on a fee-basis, or more commonly, supported by advertising revenue. With the loss of several key, long-term contracts, and the movement of advertising dollars out of print, the company has been forced to transition for the most part into the digital realm. They have embarked on making the company into a digital-centric content marketer, and have added other online marketing services enabled by new hires. The challenge is that the profit margins are nothing like the old days, and it seems every ad agency, PR company, and marketing communications firm across the country is trying to do the same thing--bill themselves as a digital-age content marketer proficient in PR, social media, email, CRM, etc. However, some very talented people at the top have guided key new business into the company, and it continues to attract good talent. Generally a good work environment, with offices in a historic old jeans factory. Good Salary, OK to sub-par benefits that have decreased in value over the years as company revenue has shrunk. Great middle management, although most key decisions as still made at the highest level, which for some time has been only partially-engaged in the "day-to-day." Limited advancement possibilities.
