    I worked at Forbes

    Pros

    Mostly great people to work with and relaxing work environment...when I was there.

    Cons

    Expect some levels of office politics. Upper management are like most places these days that REALLY are disconnected from their staffs and real world results. Layoffs in recent years is starting to show the decline in the quality of the brand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The push for .com is a joke. Upper management's lack of web development and direction of technologies is one big reason they have been declining as a brand. Content is king, figure it out why people need to pay to read great articles.
