    I worked at Everyday Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -room for growth
    -promote from within
    -good benefits
    -sense of community

    Cons

    -tendency to hire upper management and fails to onboard, leaving the teams under the new managers in a position where they are training those above them
    -while benefits are good, there is no bonus structure outside of sales and salary is not competitive
    -you have to create a work life balance - if you don't push back, work will quickly take over (weekends, nights...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to reward good employees instead of playing into bratty behavior. Streamline onboarding processes. Give your employees the tools they need to succeed on their own.

    I have been working at Everyday Health as a contractor for less than a 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.

    Pros

    IPO company without IPO standards.

    Cons

    No corporate culture, infra is not great too.
    Managers are very very unprofessional, they take abusive words and satirical looks as the tools to drive, sometimes behave very egoistic.
    If there's more work they will employ an other manager, they always think that pressuring the employees will make more productive.
    Very few managers are fantastic, rest are all very tough to work with. Tight deadlines, they save money at every level,
    Hirings and firings doesn't matter to them, while firing they wouldn't feel ethical to give a notice of a single day, they try to save on employee's notice period time as well.
    More work goes to offshore, and work wise same tools across multiple sites so just the recurring projects, copy paste kind of; nothing new challenging work. They compromise on quality over quantity/deliverable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Topmost management should keep an eye what their managers are doing to accomplish the things and how they are dealing with their subordinates, if injustice done, they should come forward to help at every level. Staying silent means they support unprofessional behaviour of their peers and hence need to be accountable for.

    I have been working at Everyday Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Young and enthusiastic company, good values, great benefits and work-life balance, stock options, most managers are very lax and not micro-managers

    Cons

    Not easy to get ahead (yearly reviews make it hard to move up no matter how hard you've worked), lax environment and unlimited PTO leads to a lot of employees taking advantage, a lot of rewards and bonuses issued to sales, but little to nothing for sales support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees for a job well done and offer more feedback to grow

    Pros

    apples, bananas, oranges available for the breakfast time.

    Cons

    unlimited vacation is a scam, that way they avoid paying for the unused days when an employee leaves / when they layoff. Layoffs are quiet common here that every week we hear about them, they don't feel ethical to announce it on the same day without any notice or notice-period and the next day they're jobless and no severence benefits or anything like that, none of their teams will be reachable from then on. DOL needs to put a complete audit on them, they never pay extra hours either and send lot of work to offshore, and hire more immigrants mostly whoever can come for very cheap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be ethical and don't play with employees lives.

    I have been working at Everyday Health

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO (if they approve it)
    Emphasis on health and wellness
    Dynamic environment

    Cons

    What good is unlimited PTO when management doesn't guilt trip you into it.
    Sure there's emphasis on health and wellness, take all the time you need work out and see doctors....except between the hours of 8-6 M-F and not impact your work (say one thing, do something different).
    Yes it's a lively and dynamic environment but there is no future there. Senior management is paying themselves a boat load of money and hiring fresh college graduates to basically put their own spin today's hot story. In the three years I've been there, there have been NO RAISES for most of the staff.

    And for a tech company, you have got to be kidding me.
    Outages constantly, an IT department of maybe 10 (remember this is a internet website content company and only 10-15 people TOTAL in IT), antiquated equipment (they refuse to buy so they looked good for the IPO), THE senior IT manager that can't manage (half of his best staff has quit since I've been here....rats off a sinking ship) and no solid review process (you should see the bugs we have to explain away to potential advertisers).

    I will be departing at the end of the year.
    I wanted to stay but executive management's focus on the IPO and how much they would make has led me to believe that all they want to do now is sell the company to a WebMD or someone, cash out and leave us suckers holding the bag.

    Finally, if you plan on advancing upward in this company, forget about it. There's nowhere to advance to.
    Senior management are entrenched and aren't going anywhere until they sell the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your tech, what kind of tech company has shoddy technology?
    Executive management needs to stop investing in themselves and hire experienced people. The gap between experienced and fresh out of college kids is just too stark.
    We can all see this is a company positioned to be sold and executive management cash out. That doesn't bode well for a staff that has the feeling the company can be sold and they are jobless and stockless.
    Treat and retain the good people you have or the revolving door is going to fall off of it's spindle!

    Pros

    Unlimited vacation. Fresh fruit every morning. Occasional pizza lunches. Nice location in the West Village. Most people are genuinely nice.

    Cons

    The usual problems in a big company. Some managers are nasty and unfair. Some rules are applied unfairly or inconsistently. Open plan office makes it impossible to concentrate without wearing sound-canceling headphones. Too many people in too little space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the open plan office layout.

    Pros

    Large IT group/product group. Reasonably good at quickly taking new digital products to market. Good experience for a mid-level software engineer.

    Cons

    Not a people centered company! It is sync or swim with very little on boarding. Salaries are below industry averages and as a result turn-over is super high. Almost impossible to keep a team together for over a year. Very cramped working conditions.
