RentPath(formerly known as Primedia)
Director (Former Employee), Norcross, GADecember 1, 2013
Pros: competitive comp package and the 401k plan was outstanding
Cons: benefits are extremely expensive (medical, vision, dental). additionally, depending on your role, most of the time the job demanded long work days, 10-12 hrs. times like this is when you can't find the right balance between work and personal life.
Is a great place to work. They offer opportunity for growth and advancement. The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with my team, our advertisers and senior management. I also enjoyed seeing employees under my direct supervision grow and move up within the company. I am a firm believer in promoting from within and identifying (hidden) talent. – more... One of my mentors taught me that "you are always practicing for your next job." I firmly believe that. – less

Regional Account Executive/AGRA Liason (Current Employee), Norcross, GAApril 8, 2013
Pros: great working environment
Cons: you can get fired while out on a legitimate medical leave.
This company has been around for a long time. I enjoyed consulting with clients, my days tend to go pretty quick. It is by no means an easy job, but it's super fun and exciting. My co-workers were great, management tends to be fickle, in a sales position you are the favorite as long as your on top...Otherwise you tend to go unnoticed.
My favorite thing – more... about working here is that I manage my own time, and find my own clients. – less

Director of Talent Acquisition & Development (Former Employee), Norcross, GAApril 30, 2012
A typical day of work in my position involved sourcing and interviewing candidates to secure best in class talent in various positions for the company. My department managed the full life cycle of the recruiting and hiring process for all of the open positions in the company, with a focus on sales and sales management positions.

I also spent considerable – more... time developing course content for company training programs and managing the MIT (Manager-In-Training) Program. Managing the MIT Program was the most enjoyable part of the job for me. I am passionate about staff development and have enjoyed working closely with sales representatives and sales managers to help them improve their skills.

The hardest part of the job was reducing the time to fill for certain positions. The final interviews and decisions were made by hiring managers. My department vetted candidates and presented them to hiring managers for interviews and evaluation. – less

Primedia used to be a Great Company to work for.
Operations & Development Manager (Former Employee), Johannesburg, GPSeptember 23, 2013
Pros: great training arena and able to learn a lot.
Cons: little family time as long hours and extensive travel was involved.
A typical day at work was generally enjoyable due to the people that are employed at this company. The work itself was challenging and eventful. I learned a lot from the experience I obtained at PRIMEDIA specifically in the operations and development field where I found myself after running a PRIMEDIA company in Zimbabwe for 7 years. The management – more... of PRIMEDIA should become closer to the employees as one of the values is 'People', however there is little respect for the 'people' at PRIMEDIA. Co workers are generally great people. The hardest part of the job was dealing with incompetent people from a supplier perspective as well as within the company - in certain instances. The most enjoyable part of the job was being allowed to manage situations / projects without too much interference from executive level employees. – less
