I have been working at Hearst Corporation as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Great mentoring program and stimulating work environment. Higher ups are very approachable.

Cons

Internships are unpaid. It's hard to survive in NYC without being paid at least a small stipend.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your interns minimum wage. It's not much, but it goes a long way for students in New York City.

    I worked at Hearst Corporation as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    The Management is very supportive and although it varied from department to department, they are generally very receptive to employee feedback. Working in Hearst Tower is one of the greatest office buildings anyone could ask to be in , and the fast paced company moves with the speed and decisiveness of a much smaller corporation. The people working their are both young and bright and are given great reign to make the best of their jobs and the company as a whole. Very big on promoting from within and almost all employes seems very happy there.

    Cons

    Some of the fashion magazines can be a bit "Devil Wears Prada"

    I have been working at Hearst Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great co-workers, established local brand

    Cons

    Seriously lacking in the fundamentals. No sales/media training for employees. Leadership lacks strategic vision. No consideration of clients needs and wants. 80s mentality to sales and closing new business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people, create a product that really works for merchants, provide merchants with testimonials/information about success stories, market your product/services. Horror stories of massive turn over -- hoping reps would build business in one month. Brutal...
