    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
