    Pros

    Really developed my career here, and was supported and encouraged to do so. Had wonderful mentors. Liked the fun, young-ish atmosphere

    Cons

    As the company grew, it became a more tense and even hostile place to work. The positive, creative, dynamic atmosphere took a bit of a dive and it became somewhat of a shark tank

    Advice to Management

    Remember the little people who got you where you are now!

    Avoid working for Everyday Health if you're not in sales.

    Pros

    Free fruit in the morning (if you get there early enough), gym membership discounts, good location in SoHo

    Cons

    This is an Incredibly cliquey company with very high turnover. The focus of senior management is on the sales people, who act like they're God's gift to earth. There were so many hard working, intelligent people with lots to offer that left the company due to the toxic culture. The open concept workplace was incredibly distracting and the pay for anyone not in sales is mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to those in the company outside of sales. Sure, salespeople bring in the revenue but without the other members of the organization, they wouldn't have anything to sell. Unless this culture changes, the company will continue to have high turnover and dissatisfied employees.

    Pros

    fresh fruit in the mornings

    Cons

    Culture of secrecy (several in my team learn about our own team's projects through subterfuge), cannot work from home (unless you are of the elite chosen), have unlimited PTO that you cant use (unless you are chosen -- heard there's an employee who takes off 1 day every week), home-work balance is not considered at all, extremely political (hard work and results are not rewarded -- brown nosing is), elitist culture (no one acknowledges anyone -- people walk right past you and do not acknowledge your existence!)

    Good starting place: short-term beginner's gig, where you will be sheltered from the crazy.

    Pros

    9-6 for most people, unless you're the lucky few who are caught up in last minute projects due to lack of planning. Fresh fruit in the mornings. individual teams have good camaraderie.

    Cons

    Terrible/no business planning, risky business ventures, instability in many forms. Uncompetitive compensation. Very cliquey/bro-y. High turnover/frequent layoffs. Seems like the companies numbers are made off people's salaries (by letting them go).

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to more than just the Sales Department.

    Pros

    Opportunity to get experience in the digital advertising world.

    Cons

    No room for personal growth unless you're with the "in" crowd. Very catty, gossipy environment, where management is all about the hierarchy. Employees with bad attitudes are encouraged and rewarded as long as they kiss up to the right people. Chaotic processes that change every week with spotty reinforcement.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate. Try to be a leader in the industry as opposed to being a big shot in the office.

    Pros

    The office location is in a "cool" area and the pay isn't bad.
    There's free fruit in the am if you can get there in time and a good amount of free pizza (which makes no sense for a wannabe health company)

    Cons

    Middle Management is useless
    Upper Management is out of touch and involved in too much lower level business
    Culture and morale are low on this sinking ship
    Very political
    Very cliquey and snobby

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your middle management, actually ask and listen to what employees say about them.

    Pros

    Office location in a trendy part of NYC. Good natural light and fresh fruit daily

    Cons

    Top heavy company with no vision. A very clique-ish and political environment. I have never seen so many miserable employees in my career. Senior management is clueless and does not support their staff. If you are not part of the in crowd, you will be ultimately let go by HR that is part of the culture problem. Avoid this company. Very toxic place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in an independent consultant to do a complete top down assessment of the business, people and overall culture.

    Pros

    Flex time, free fruit and cereal. The benefits are OK. The company is growing, but not organically,

    Cons

    Don't trust management. 'Unlimited Vacation' is limited and hard to get. One failed acquisition after another. Management is focused on growth at all cost. Not a company where you can grow.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Don't talk about how you care about employees, but balance the books on their backs.
