    I worked at Forbes as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Was hired as an intern this summer. No regrets. Helpful supervisors and lots of responsibilities, made me feel like a real journalist. Intern pay was good as well.

    Cons

    I can't think of any real cons, unless you don't want to be a journalist I guess. Forbes is a great company to work in given the state of the industry now.

    Pros

    Great team environment, very welcoming, and was given the opportunity to engage employees of all levels. Strong emphasis on benefits and educating the employees on how to best use them, quarterly meetings for senior management to let everyone know how Forbes is moving forward. Was easy to maintain work-life balance.

    Cons

    Average salaries. Departments do not offer the same rate of promotion, especially if you are outside of the income- or content-generating realm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on entry- to mid- level employee investment and training, and compensate accordingly.
