Pros

The only reason to work at Rodale is for the benefits. They have good health insurance, good dental insurance, 401k, gym membership is subsidized $60 a month, and you get 16 days off.

Cons

The atmosphere is horrible and everyone is miserable. The pay is awful for lower level employees who do most of the work. This sounds pretty typical of any corporate situation but it's not. At Rodale you will not get a raise unless you quit and come back or get a job offer somewhere else. They don't care how hard you work or how ambitious you are. Also, don't think you can get free coffee in the kitchen because you have to pay for it. The mission of Rodale has completely dissolved in the past few years. The treatment of it's employees has deteriorated tremendously.

    Pros

    Live your whole life is their motto, and for the most part the company as a whole tries to facilitate that, even for its employees

    Cons

    Workload is overwhelming
    Upper to mid-management is for the most part incompetent.
