    Former Contractor - Editorial Assistant in New York, NY

    I worked at Martha Stewart Living as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Employer was sensitive to the fact that I was in grad school and gave me time off without me having to ask when she could see I needed it.

    Cons

    As opposed to other print news outlets I've worked for were people are friendly and engage in frequent lively discussions, the environment at MSL was very weird/quiet. People didn't speak to those they sit next to everyday unless there was a meeting or they were working on something together.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Martha Stewart Living full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    extremely talented co-workers, exposure to multiple media outlets

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employees' well being
    Non-Management employees are expected to do the job of three, at a compensation level bellow industry average
    Long hours, no employee perks
    No feedback, positive or negative during a projects timeline. You only find out if there are problems after you have completed it, often times having to start from scratch at that point. If you were given feedback earlier in the process it would be more efficient for the entire company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn management skills and don't make important decisions based on favoritism.
