    Pros

    There are a lot of things to love about Mashable's editorial side: it's a low-stakes work environment, with a high emphasis on having fun. It takes digital culture seriously; if you love memes, Reddit, or are just a nerd, you'll find plenty of kindred spirits here. Benefits are kind, and it's also great at work/life balance: You'll never get frantic calls or emails from your boss on a Saturday demanding you to drop everything and rush in to the office. This is an especially great workplace for the very young or fresh out of school.

    Cons

    In recent years, Mashable's culture has suffered as management has changed directions. Long-time employees are leaving in droves, complaining about lack of opportunities for growth or being generally undervalued by their supervisors. Many feel that attention (and senior titles) is being unfairly given to recently-hired "superstars" at the expense of early employees who grew the company to its current size. Even Mashable's low-pressure workplace culture seems to be evaporating as office politics claim more and more of management's time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Editorial management's strategy is heavy on acquiring new talent at the top, but with few exceptions, those hires have so far led to nothing great. Rather, management would do well to give its long-time employees – the ones whose work led to million-dollar investments in the first place – bigger and better opportunities. There's no lack of talent and ideas at Mashable, just a lack of managerial competence to recognize it and courage to let it run.

    Assistant Editor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Mashable.

    Interview Details

    There was a phone interview, and then a one-on-one interview with several editors at Mashable headquarters. Interviewing style and energy varied from very business like to casual. The interview process, from application to in-person took a few months - communication on their part was lacking building up toward in-person talks and they never followed up with me after the fact.
