    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Forbes full-time for more than a year


    Great team environment, very welcoming, and was given the opportunity to engage employees of all levels. Strong emphasis on benefits and educating the employees on how to best use them, quarterly meetings for senior management to let everyone know how Forbes is moving forward. Was easy to maintain work-life balance.


    Average salaries. Departments do not offer the same rate of promotion, especially if you are outside of the income- or content-generating realm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on entry- to mid- level employee investment and training, and compensate accordingly.

    Positive Outlook
