    Pros

    Great Company that really cared about its employees. Very laid back environment. Family owned company.

    Cons

    Sometimes not enough structure. Once bought out they laid off employees who had been with the company for several years. Not much of a severence package.

    Advice to Management

    Hope that they can restructure and hire qualified people who really care. Lots of turnover could be prevented that way.

    Pros

    Amazing company culture with lots of support, benefits, and fun perks. Employees are encouraged to share new ideas, and the company often hosts fun health initiatives with team prizes.

    Cons

    The websites tend to grow based on current trends, so if something doesn't work out, those new and exciting jobs are often cut first.

    Pros

    Interesting colleagues, commitment to a team, decent benefits plan, variety of training programs, and open office design.

    Poor communication, lack of respect for employees, focus on revenue overrides any commitment to a quality product, very little understanding of or respect for users. "steal ideas" rather than support original concepts.

    Advice to Management

    learn to think strategically

    I worked at Everyday Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fresh fruit is available daily, along with an industrial coffee machine and cold brew (coffee) taps. Multiple teams of intelligent people working toward a common goal provides opportunities for collaboration, learning, and innovation. Peers are approachable and often willing to help out or just talk things out.

    Cons

    Many policies from team leadership seem made from a fear. While encouraged to take time off, the process involves managers attempting to negotiate less time. Having input on the design of a project (on the web).

    Advice to Management

    Focus on people and far less on deadlines.
