    I worked at D Magazine Partners as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great flexibility, and structure for an internship. There is a very developed intern program where you get to present a project companywide and gain valuable experience in your area of interest. Upper Management is involved and concerned about interns and their experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is down time and you don't always have stuff to do--can get bored. Also, unpaid. Overall, great experience though!

    I worked at D Magazine Partners part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly on-site free yoga courses
    IT problems resolved fairly quickly
    Food brought in from a local vendor almost daily

    Cons

    Low pay and long hours
    Company focuses on superficial "perks" rather than actual valuable benefits
    Very clique oriented, akin to high school
    There is no vacation. You have to ask off from a supervisor in order to take time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Free food and a relaxed work dress code are nice, but to retain good employees you need to give actual benefits in the form of things like higher salaries, tuition reimbursement, etc.

    Entrepreneurial company, freedom to pitch creative ideas

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    I worked at D Magazine Partners full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    D does an excellent job of valuing its employees, generating a culture of excellence, and encouraging employees to think creatively. This ability to be nimble while maintaining quality work product has been a major driving force behind their success. Another impressive facet of D's culture is expecting excellence from employees while appreciating work-life balance. This philosophy was one of the reasons D has such a great working environment.

    Cons

    D struggles with communication between departments. Business functions are especially isolated from the editorial department, preventing some potentially beneficial collaborations. Also, management had the tendency to fire what seemed like top-performing employees without explanation to the rest of the staff. This created an atmosphere of mistrust. Although, in general, I think D's moderately high employee turnover rate is actually good for the company.

    Pros

    The environment is awesome. Very laid back but professional. Everyone was very nice and eager to help each other. I enjoyed my time here.

    Cons

    With the company being so big, it was hard to know who very many people were. My position was also unpaid which is always a downfall to anything in the working world.

    I have been working at D Magazine Partners as an intern

    Pros

    Cool people, fun activities, fun workplace.

    Cons

    I didn't learn that much. I ended up being an intern for a different department/place that I interviewed and applied for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a better intern "project" and give the interns more things to do.
