    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Dennis Publishing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people are largely friendly and sociable. Glass office feels spacious. There is considerable investment since their acquisition by Exponent.

    Cons

    Management have recently sold Dennis, everything is driving towards earning money now. Transparency is a huge issue, senior teams have big plans they will not share with teams this will impact. HR and recruitment team has a big turn over as a result of their own team's politics, imagine what this means for the rest of the business. This place is heavily political meaning work-life balance is very poor. Glass ceiling, pay gap report shows Mean of 49% difference in bonus male vs female. Innovation has taken a back seat for instant revenue. Technical teams are short staffed with huge workloads they cannot deliver.

    I worked at Dennis Publishing full-time

    Pros

    Agile working culture, and most staff are on the whole helpful, and committed to their daily roles.

    Cons

    Management have an instilled culture of 'do as I say' not 'as I do. The pub can seem like a better option for most even when the work piles up, cancelled appointments in favor of doing their 'social' bit. Not enough praise or recognition for employees, and a tendency for some within the management structure to either completely blank you at best, and treat you differently to other team members at worst - is that what is meant by being 'brilliiantly different'? Offers of a work/life balance are sold up front through the interview process, but the reality is that if you are told by management to be in the office then that rules. which breaks the employer/employee implied trust.

    I have been working at Dennis Publishing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is a lot to love about this company: - Great pay -- really top-notch - Great work/life balance - Work remotely - Kind bosses who are quick to compliment a good job - Lots of recognition - Trusting of employees of do what they need to get the job done - Affordable insurance (even a great HDHP w/ an HSA) - High bonus potential (10%) - Loads of holidays off and over a week off for Xmas/New Years - 15 vacation days 2 personal days and 10 sick days to start - Lots of innovation (at least on the side I work on) - Cross-department collaboration is great - CEO is very open and communicates company happenings regularly

    Cons

    There's not much to say, but I will add a few small things: - Tech is a little antiquated - CMS needs scrapped for something newer and more streamlined - Limited development resources can cause bottlenecks - Communication is light at some times - 1% 401(k) match is below average
