I have been working at National Journal full-time (More than a year)
Iconic location and great office views. Strong PTO policy, and a culture that awards complete loyalty - particularly if you start at the ground floor as in right out of college and are willing to live on no money. The unlimited soda fountain is also pretty sweet, and the roof top wifi is great.
Where to begin.... NJ is quickly loosing relevancy on many levels. A current operating membership business model that worked well in the 80's - that has never managed to evolve or change to what is competitive within the industry beyond what it was. The culture at its core, is a pure reflection of what most of the country finds horribly wrong about DC and the current political system - its broken, ego centric amongst the overly pumped up elite/executive leadership group, unable to make decisions that are for the greater good, reactive, and rotten on the inside once you peel back the glossy smiley exterior. Everything is constantly changing, but never in any constructive way. People come in with great ideas - and a few even have the bench strength / experience to be able to effectively lead - but if one of the original mean kids doesn't like them - they're gone. Very very gossipy and too many conversations happening behind close doors, about stuff that doesn't really matter.
