    I worked at NewsMax Media full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great, smart people working for a fast growing company with relatively high exposure. Opportunities to expand what and grow are abundant for those that look for them. Tie yourself to revenue and you will see your salary grow exponentially.

    Cons

    Far and away the most bizarre management team I've ever worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's way too much rumor-mongering as a result of their being no top-down communication. Encourage cross-department communication as much as possible.

    Senior Web Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at NewsMax Media in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone interview was technical with a good degree of depth, and was conducted well. The in-person interview felt like a police interrogation instead of a structured approach to assessing the capabilities of a candidate.

    The in-person interview felt more like a police interrogation than an interview and was focused on narrow pet-peeve questions that cannot possibly give a good assessment of a candidate's capabilities in the broader sense.
