    I have been working at Future US full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Future has evolved over the last ten years from a magazine publisher that also operated websites to a true hybrid media group with a strong digital footprint. That evolution has not been without challenge, but Future has navigated the transition in ways less nimble publishers could not. I started with Future with one year of experience in magazine publishing and have had the opportunity with this company to grow my skill set to include online, social, mobile, channel, experiential, and custom. Future offers plenty of opportunity for career growth and advancement, not to mention great benefits, time-off policies, etc. Management is very accessible and always open to employee ideas.

    Cons

    The Future team is lean and mean. It is not a place for the phrase: that's not my job. It takes flexibility to succeed in this workplace, because as the media world evolves, so do job descriptions.
