Pros

All Gawker's sites have notoriety and huge reader base. It's a great place for an aspiring writer to make a name for themselves, but don't expect a huge salary or great benefits -- or good hours. However, you can easily make the jump from Gawker to another, more employee friendly company, plus some people thrive on the huge workload.

Cons

LONG hours, huge expectations, very sink or swim attitude. Either you can hack it or you can't, there is no middle ground. Benefits suck.

Advice to Management

Take better care of your people and listen to them when they're unhappy! Also, large changes at the company can be quite sudden and unpredictable.
