Talented co-workers, but pay and benefits are the worst in the biz

Writer, Editor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Modern Luxury

ProsSmart, talented colleagues, good branding, good events, interesting assignments

ConsThe pay and benefits might be the worst in the industry, which says a lot in an already low-paying industry. Even during good economic times, the health insurance was a joke, dental was nonexistent, and we were discouraged from even getting reimbursements for work-related expenses. Also - CEO would send Christmas cards of his kids in front of his mansion to us (low-paid, bonus-less) employees who were trying to figure out how we would even afford holiday gifts.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove pay, implement respectable benefits, and respect the need for employs to take their earned PTO.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
