I worked at Rodale (More than 10 years)
They walk the talk and are truly engaged in inspiring people to improve their lives and the world around them. This applies to their customers AND employees! From the extensive employee benefits to a C-team that truly listens, Rodale is a wonderful place to work at both their Emmaus and New York City offices.
I did not have any negative experiences.

I applied online. I interviewed at Rodale.
Applied for an intern position in May of 2014, and got a call from HR shortly after. Standard questions, from there I had a phone call with the hiring manager. We immediately hit it off, and it was clear that I had the skills she was looking for. I was then called in to their New York office where I met with the hiring manager, and we had a nice conversation again, once again standard behavioral questions. I was then shuffled off to meet with one of the buyers. She was extremely nice, and we had a great conversation, I even worked with a startup company she was trying to get into contact with, so overall we had a great conversation. I then was taken to meet with the other buyer and that's where things spiraled out of control. While everyone else I met treated me with respect, this woman showed anything but that. She told me I had the wrong major, and that I "didn't feel right" for the position. She then continued to berate my career aspirations by telling me that no one would ever hire me. I left completely stunned that anyone would attack someone in that manner on an interview. Not sure why the company would drag me through the entire interview process only to be put in front of that dragon. Will never apply for another job at the company, nor will I ever purchase one of their products.
