Relaxed working environment, no benefits or job advancement
Senior Marketing Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYApril 27, 2014
Pros: can work from home if needed; relaxed working environment
Cons: poor healthcare benefits, no 401k match; no pay raise
The environment is good to work. However, there is no 401K match, sub par health benefits, if you can call it a benefit--HSA is basically it.

No room for advancement, no pay raise, senior management is afraid to rock the boat.

Despite all this, you have loyal workers especially from those who enjoy what they do--offering up 150% or more, working long – more... hours. – less

Ok, but not great...
Art Director (Former Employee), new york, nyApril 7, 2014
Pros: relax atmosphere
Cons: low pay, unprofessional, high turnover...
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 – more... to people... – less

REGIONAL SALES MANAGER (Former Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 5, 2013
Pros: management team who knew the business channels; effectively motivated the sales team.
Cons: private equity company takeover. many management changes.
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. I learned to flourish both personally and professionally with managers and clients, with whom I still have professional relationships.

Art Director/Graphic Design Lead (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 24, 2013
Pros: working on numerous publications helped better my skills in many areas.

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

The work was challenging, but it was fun, and I learned a lot.
Editor of three trade publications, founder of one (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 2, 2013
Pros: cardline helped me improve my computer skills.
Cons: i started work early, ate lunch at my desk and worked late.
For five years, I was editor of CardLine, a daily online newspaper that reported on the worldwide financial-services industry.

I wrote four to five 500-word stories each day. I edited the stories before sending the issue to CardLine subscribers.

I made two-important innovations at CardLine. They included launching the CardLine News Bulletin. When – more... a major story broke outside the regular publication cycle, I would send out a special bulletin.

I also launched CardLine Europe to cover the financial-services industry in Europe. Later, SourceMedia management launched CardLine Asia.

When I became CardLine editor, the publication reported annual revenues of $250,000. When I stepped down to take another assignment, CardLine's annual revenues had reached $2 million.

I also was editor of ATM&Debit News, which reported on the ATM and debit- card industries. In addition, I wrote for another card publication that no longer exists.

CardLine, however, was the most fun because it was a daily publication. – less

High productivity environment with dedicated staff reaching needed goals.
Fulfillment Supervisor for Electronic and Print (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 2, 2012
Pros: generous vacation time. veteran publishing professionals on staff.
Cons: high productivity demands, overall leadership from upper management was lacking, inefficient coordination between departments.
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 – more... the employees. High productivity demands made at crunch times, but respect to those who made sure the work was completed efficiently and without error. – less
