Art Director (Former Employee) – new york, ny – April 7, 2014
Relax atmosphere, some of the co-workers are fun to be around, but management is more interesting in saving their friends' job than keeping the experienced and skillful people around. Most of the people in management position have very little skills because people are not selected for management positions based on skills, but on how much you suck up to people...
REGIONAL SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 5, 2013
Worked for the company for 6.5 years with a management team that was totally supportive, very "team-centric", While "upper management" changed, every couple of years, there was stability within our respective divisions.

Challenging and I learned a lot, Ok company to work for

This was my stepping stone. Not a lot of room for growth but I was fortunate to be considered when an opening presented itself and I was promoted. I've had the privilege of working with truly great and interesting people. I learned a lot in my years working at SourceMedia
working on numerous publications helped better my skills in many areas.
High productivity environment with dedicated staff reaching needed goals.
Fulfillment Supervisor for Electronic and Print (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 2, 2012
I enjoyed working there and the many varied professional personalities I encountered. SourceMedia was purchased from Thompson Media by Investcorp in 2004 in order to sell again. Overall upper manangement leadership and staff morale tended to be low. Waves of layoffs although sometimes in small numbers did not encourage feelings of job security amongst the employees. High productivity demands made at crunch times, but respect to those who made sure the work was completed efficiently and without error.
generous vacation time. veteran publishing professionals on staff.
high productivity demands, overall leadership from upper management was lacking, inefficient coordination between departments.
