I have been working at Crain Communications full-time (More than 10 years)
Great people on the front lines: journalists, art directors, editors, sales people, etc. Pretty good PTO policy. Generally solid work environment. Opportunity to move around, kind of. Pay is solid.
Weak management, who's only strategy seems to be cut, cut, cut. Empty talk about a clear vision forward. Centralized functions hamstring individual brands. Attempt to align everyone's interest not well thought out or executed. Lack of best practices around the retirement plan.
Advice to Management
Fish or cut bait.
The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Crain Communications in November-2011.
I applied with a CV and cover letter and got invited to the interview. It was pretty straightforward. THey asked me why I wanted to work for the company, what skills I could bring to them. It was prety informal and although one of the interviewees (there were 2) grilled me on how I would solve particular problem, he was still friendly. Very professional and nice people.
There was no negotiaiotn, which was disappointing
