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.

Advice to Management

hire someone new

    Pros

    health and vision benefits, gym membership reimbursement (if you ever find time to get to a gym), other benefits

    Cons

    office politics, you won't go anywhere if you're a woman, long hours, very low pay, senior managers take credit for other people's work and get credit and promotions based on that while the person who is doing all of the work gets no raise or recognition and works longer hours, most "lower level" employees are treated poorly

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to make people work 60+ hour weeks, you should pay them more and show them some respect. If you're going to give bonuses, either give them to everyone in the company or no one. Senior management doesn't deserve bonuses for the hard work that their teams do, considering their teams make dirt pay.
