I have been working at Everyday Health full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Unlimited PTO, decent health insurance, some truly great people with whom you can commiserate about your frustrating job.Cons
Where do I begin?
1. The level of micromanagement is staggering. I've been doing what I do professionally for 10+ years as have many of my co-workers, yet we spend our time in endless meetings being constantly second-guessed and micromanaged. It's difficult to get anything done.
2. Business priorities change on a daily basis. It's a running joke. This isn't about being nimble and responding to market needs; It's truly whiplash.
3. They keep hiring executives and managers who bring no value while we don't have enough designers and developers to get the work done. The answer is always to outsource to Ukraine or Mumbai. Forget designers. We used to have a design group. They're slowly disappearing.
4. HR cannot be trusted. They are too chummy with execs and management; employees refuse to go to them about serious managerial malfeasance.
5. Career advancement is about cliques and butt-kissing, not performance. I did get one promotion; only because I made a really big stink about it. That shouldn't have had to happen.
6. There are different rules for different groups. For instance, some groups have unlimited PTO, others actually do not.
7. The true focus of the company is in building an advertising platform; There is only lip-service to product. There is no focus on delivering amazing products and services to help people live healthier lives and upon which effective revenue streams (ad + more) can be built. It's all just a cover for selling more ad space no matter how crappy the product.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I give up. It's not even worth offering advice at this point. I came her optimistic, excited and ready to build great products. They've broken me.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
