    Pros

    The employees were very friendly and helpful. Everyone was incredibly passionate about the work they were doing and excited about making changes for the positive.

    Cons

    I wasn't sure if I was actually contributing much in terms of original content. The articles I wrote for the magazine were basically rehashes of existing articles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go for quality over quantity in terms of magazine articles. This would help CHARGED.fm stand out in a sea of similar online magazines.
