    Pros

    I work on the free portal, InvestorPlace.com, which published about 60-70 articles each day at present and serves about 1.5 million readers each month. The pace of work is brisk but incredibly rewarding. The stock market can change fast and the stakes are high with real money on the line for our readers, so you have to always be reading and researching... but since I like to stay busy and learn new things this is decidedly a plus and not a negative. Best of all, the work is very rewarding professionally for those who prove up to the task. I've had a number of raises and promotions, but what's most satisfying is my ability to propose new projects and ideas. There is always support and opportunities for those willing to try new things and pursue them. Some jobs will send you to conferences in Las Vegas as "professional development." But my professional development is actually my job, and the great people around me who help me and give me the chance to try new things -- even if they may fail. The constant train of free lunches/bagels/coffee also is a plus!

    Cons

    Financial media is a very specific corner of the universe, and then within our company we have even more focused divisions -- such as a publication focused purely on options trading. The jargon and investing strategies can sometimes be intense, so it's not something you can pick up on day one. You have to have to have a constant curiosity and a desire to learn, because almost everybody here required some serious education when they first started.

    Advice to Management

    My only knock is that people tend to be clustered in small teams of around 10 people despite there being some 70 people in total. It's unavoidable to spend most of your time among employees who do similar work, but sometimes it's hard to get to know others on the other side of the building and what exactly it is they do.
