    I worked at New York Magazine full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's just a damn great magazine. The environment is tremendously energetic and the office is full of smart people. The independent ownership and downtown location give it an appealingly scrappy, small-company vibe, as opposed to lethargic media conglomerate tone at most magazines.

    Cons

    Bean-counter budget issues are a constant drain on the staff. Salaries are low, and as a result there's high turnover, with the really good people being picked off by competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put as much effort into marketing and sales hires as you do editorial.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at New York Magazine.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online and didn't hear back for over a month. Unexpectedly, I got an email to come in a week later. No trick questions, just the normal ones you would expect. I truly hate when they ask you things like 'Whats your worst quality?', etc. but there was none of that. I would say overall their hiring process is slow. For me it took over 3 months.
