The people and work are great; the employee appreciation, not so much

Development Editor (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA

ProsThe people here are wonderful, and the work is very fulfilling, if a bit overwhelming at times.

ConsThey have zero interest in talent retention. They low-ball internal candidates, so you end up losing money if you stay here instead of looking elsewhere as you move up your career. Hierarchy is structured so that your direct manager/boss has no power, and very little ability to advocate for you. It's a real shame.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart thinking hard about the churn you've been experiencing, and what you can do to retain the good people you have. Competitive pay and company-wide WFH policies (instead of only for SOME people) would be a start.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
