"Does Advertising Age provide such a unique publication and reader experience that we would be saddened if it didn't exist? Does Advertising Age treat its employees so astonishingly well that those workers would not be able to find another employer to treat them as well? Does Advertising Age forge such unfailing emotional connections with its readers that they would fail to find another magazine that could forge just as strong an emotional bond?"
My bank account would certainly miss it! From the employee perspective, there's a reason that Ad Age doesn't have a revolving door when it comes to editorial staff (relative to other publications) -- and it's only partly because we're shackled to our desks.
At any rate, love us or hate us, go let John know what you think.
