    I worked at The Newsweek Daily Beast Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really nice office with good perks in the IAS building. Worked with some nice people who I still keep in touch with today.

    Cons

    After two months, was laid off because of a company wide downsizing. It has to be a much better environment now that Newsweek and Daily Beast are separate entities.

    Advice to Management

    Much easier to focus on one company now that the burden of Newsweek is off of The Daily Beast. Keep focusing on the content and the users will come.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Newsweek Daily Beast Company (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Had phone chat with recruiter who said my background was an excellent fit, was given a take home test. After a day I was contact to speak directly with the CTO which I interpretted as a good sign. Then I was contact a minute before the phone call and was told "there was a scheduling conflict and we'd have to try another time". I quickly asked about my test feedback and was told there hadn't been any yet. I was never contact again by the recruiter to set up another time for the CTO call.

This news beast knows a thing or two about current events.
