    Good place to work as an intern

    I have been working at Forbes

    Pros

    Easygoing co-workers and low-stress environment make for a workplace that is both inviting and not overbearing in the least. Lack of overtime is a plus.

    Cons

    Cubicle layout is less than preferable, though people are apt to stroll throughout the office and make conversation. Lack of interaction between departments however.

    I have been working at Forbes full-time

    Pros

    powerful name on your resume if you do not mind daily deadlines that have you working until the wee hours of the morning and are not concerned with growth. gym in building

    Cons

    Volatile, highly politically charged environment. multiple reorganizations, fires and layoffs per year. High quality talent with MBA's, Ivy league degrees and impressive backgrounds are managed by people with poor education and lack of management history. Talent is lured and then fired with no notice once they perform well and therefore pose a threat to management. Those who remain are either there because they have been there for 10+ years and are successful at pushing out any new hires they feel may be a threat to their position OR are trying to leave but haven't found another job as yet. Unfair workloads due to frequent fires and layoffs result in frequent late night hours (as in 10p and 11p). Poor 401k matching, healthcare and paternal leave/maternity benefits package

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
