Company Culture

Culture?

Support from management

Nothing is ever clearly spelled out with goalposts consistently changing, and 'supervisors' do everything they can to claim credit for others' hard work. They have a real knack for consistently putting the wrong people in the wrong positions.

Teamwork

I've never encountered a place where no one interfaces with each other quite like there.

Freedom to work independently

Workload is almost fairly distributed, but if you show any willingness to go the extra mile, it's taken advantage of and becomes an expectation rather than a reason to reward work ethic.

Internal Communication

Communication exists top down, no one is interested in input from the people who actually do the work.

Gender Equality

Women who can play the game can do well, so there's that I guess.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not interested in hiring older employees...most leave before they actually get 'older' to find better positions elsewhere.

Career Development

People are generally pigeon-holed and aren't given much opportunity to grow...athough there is a lot of 'failing up'.

Overall compensation for your work

Average compensation for the New York market, though the insurance (Aetna) leaves a lot to be desired, unless of course you don't get sick.

Office / Work Environment

Very loud working conditions, with people constantly making it difficult to concentrate on tasks.

Environmental Friendliness

Socially aware?

Work-Life Balance

As long as you are deemed to be doing your work, you are considered balanced.

Company Image

No one is happy there and most are always looking for other opportunities. The image of a functional company does not match reality...at all.

Job Security

Hard to say...most people leave for better situations before they are let go.

Handicapped Accessibility

The company doesn't, but the building in which they reside is accessible.

Workplace Safety

No safety training that I was ever aware of.

Challenging Work

Any good work done is quickly claimed by others as theirs.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diverse opinions, and opinions in general are frowned upon.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of the publisher and start over again with clear leadership and direction. Renew the mission statement and clarify the roles that people have so that it becomes a well oiled machine rather than a sputtering, leaking mess that stays in one piece only because of the many patches applied. Hire the right people for the job and once hired treat them professionally and allow their opinions to be heard (not just the voices from above). Once the right people are on board, allow them to receive the benefits of their hard work and not the person to whom they report - allow the successes to be credited to the people who created them.

What I like about the company

It was a method to place money in my bank account. The best thing I can say about the company is that I am no longer a part of it.

What I dislike about the company

The one thing that I felt was the least attractive element was how good they were at hiring the exact wrong person for the exact wrong position, thereby setting people up for failure. It's so like clockwork that it's almost comical...but it's far from funny,
