Pros

Interesting people, fun and fast paced environment where there are lots of opportunity to learn

Cons

Top heavy organization, executive leadership is shaky. Mid-level employees are over-worked and under-paid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend the time and money investing in the infrastructure and rewarding the people who put in the time to help the organization succeed.

    I worked at Here Media full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    When there was a significant amount of content-generating employees, as well as employees in general, a person could work alongside some dedicated and smart individuals. But then the company began to slash and burn its various teams.

    Cons

    When this company took on a bevy of print and online publications, the management clearly had no idea how much money and effort (i.e., people, manpower, etc.) it actually takes to produce quality content. The management sat at weekly management meetings to "ooh" and "aah" over metrics on website visits when the numbers could have been much higher with backing of needed efforts. In addition, failures of sales and marketing to produce on a regular basis were glossed over when content-producing areas were admonished despite generating landmark content benchmarks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Content is king. Stop thinking you'll save your company by investing in sales personnel when you've gutted content producers and the ones you have remaining are woefully inexperienced and generate content and efforts at overseeing content that makes them look like promoted secretarial staff. Oh yes, that's right...several of them are.
