    I worked at Red Herring


    It was a great place to get your foot in the door of the financial journalism world. Hardworking people were quite the inspiration, although some of the crazier journalists and editors at RH were more ego-tripping than helpful. Depending on who was slotted as the editor above you, you could definitely acquire a great working experience and inspirational passion for your position.

    The company was located in a great area of Silicon Valley, although commuters from Caltrain would have quite a walk up ol' Ralston Avenue just to get to the area. Packing one's lunch was fun, as it was hard to find anywhere local to eat.


    Well... where to begin. For starters, the company was dying. Inept management at the top made it next-to-impossible for this weekly magazine to survive. Jackass editors weren't very constructive, so much as power-tripping and crazy. Turning stories in was akin to offering up your firstborn to the sacrificial altar, although you'd have to worry that your higher-ups wouldn't accidentally whack you as well with the blade.

    But even beyond all that, the place was decent enough to work for until, as noted, the checks started bouncing. Once "don't worry about its" became the bi-weekly ritual in place of cold, hard cash... it was time to get out. Yikes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revolt against Alex Vieux. Spin Red Herring into a Web-only publication. And, then, hire a better Web designer.
