Crain’s City Books
After first joining Crain’s Detroit Business as an intern in 2007, Kim Waatti started a full-time position at the publication after graduating from college. She’s been at Crain ever since working for various publications; even when one of the brands Kim was working at closed, she was able to transfer to another job within Crain.
One of the many reasons Kim has stayed at Crain is because of the support and multiple growth opportunities. “At Crain, my direct supervisors have always been very supportive of my growth,” Kim said, even when it meant allowing her to transfer to another brand. “I’ve seen that across the board here at Crain; it takes a strong leader to allow their strongest assets to move to another opportunity for their own personal growth.”
The high value that Crain places on each employee is another draw for Kim. “Even when I was just a young intern, my voice was heard at the table. You don’t need to be on the top rungs of the ladder to be heard around here.”
Crain Communications – New York
Evolving with the changes in technology is a must for a leading media company like Crain. Fortunately, there are people like Simone Pryce on our team who continually push our processes forward.
Since joining Crain as a prepress specialist in 1999, Simone has been able to fuse her passions for technology and production to revolutionize our digital pre-press department.
As the media industry expanded digitally, Simone seized the opportunity for her team to evolve. She took the initiative to master a new skill set, studying after hours for weeks to prepare a system that has shaped the way Crain does business. As the creator of this plan, Simone was ultimately promoted to a director role overseeing both prepress and production for Crain’s NYC office.
“Crain has provided an opportunity to grow instead of being stifled. The atmosphere has allowed me to advance and continue to learn.”
Pensions & Investments
I came to Pensions & Investments because I’m passionate about retirement! Our reporting serves the asset management side of retirement plans, trusts, foundations and endowments. I believe in this mission because working people depend on the growth of those institutional funds.
Retirement security gives workers the opportunity to pursue the interests they’ve spent a lifetime building. We all benefit when a retired firefighter’s pension allows her to start a new career helping at-risk youth, or when a retired kindergarten teacher is able to spend his days working on an adult literacy project. I value our work because we serve the funds that create those life-changing opportunities.
I started at Pensions & Investments in 2014, after getting an MFA in poetry and teaching first-year composition at the University of Michigan. Before that, I worked on investment banking proposals at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and I was a project manager for Morningstar’s institutional consulting group. Even though I’ve previously worked with investment managers and investment consultants, I believe our work at P&I is an even more vital support pillar for the institutional community. We’re the truth tellers. We’re the good guys on an increasingly complicated landscape.
