    I worked at Everyday Health

    Pros

    There were cheap vending machines

    Cons

    the planning team leadership was awful. The managers had no interest in training new hires and were very cliquey and judgmental. The turn over at this place is ridiculous, they get rid of people for no reason. They will not train you, they will judge you, you will be bored out of your mind, and then they will get rid you. None of my co workers liked working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get new management.

    I worked at Everyday Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free breakfast and decent benefits, The company has a great location and is somewhat committed to health and wellness.

    Cons

    Company has no vision and the management is the worst. Managers are rude and uninformed. The environment is insular. Managers are chosen based on who they know not what they know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a vision and learn some manners! Managers should speak to their staff, Courtesy starts at the top! Top Management is full of egotist stuck in the best year of their lives. They don't take seriously what they should.

    I have been working at Everyday Health (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast and dynamic enviorment
    Free fruit for the NY staff
    Encourages wellness for all employees
    Unlimited PTO

    Cons

    No investment in technology. It's held together with bubble gum
    Increasing reliance on a team in India
    Lip service about PTO. Lots of grief when you take time off, especially to deal with health issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't get your heads out and let go of your egos, the revolving door will continue to churn. Time to invest in technology if you are indeed a technology company.
    You can only go so far regurgitating today's hot story and posting it on your site.
    Be original. There's a reason why you can't nor won't beat WebMD
    Invest in your people and they will shine for you.
    Keep making executive management happy and

    I have been working at Everyday Health as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interview process is easy, just in one hour F2F.

    Cons

    My consulting company paid me for first 4 months irrespective of getting funds from the company - "Everyday Health". Later they said it's been 4 months paying out of their pockets, so if I can be paid part of my salary and full when the company pays them. It's been 13 weeks the company never paid anything, getting tough time getting full salary on-time. I try to understand but the projects are all going to offshore, so feeling nervous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please Don't hire if you can't pay.
