    I have been working at Crain Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed place to work, you are eitehr doing nothing or you get hit with a ton of work. The company is really trying to hold on and re-evaluate their mission and how to say relevant.

    Cons

    The entire management team is in Detriot. Not many oppurtinites to connect with anyone in person, very siloed workplace. Salary is Detriot based and does not get adjusted for NYC cost of living.

    Advice to Management

    There are tough times ahead, but value the players you have. Stop giving brands so much power and focus on more corporate intiatives.
