    I worked at Hearst Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you're really perceptive, it's a great way to get an inside look at the world of magazines and decide if you want to build a career there. Just, be assertive and ask to learn things or you might not get as much out of it - people are there to work, so naturally you're not their first thought. The staff is friendly and there are amaizing perks despite not getting paid. Looks great on a resume too!

    Cons

    You're really just observing aside from solo internship projects. Never sat in on meetings or anything, just typical grunt work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be great for intens to work together or at least contribute to something rather than sending out mail and picking up dry cleaning.

    I have been working at Hearst Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Large private company that supports its people. Continued professional growth, many great benefits only a large company can provide, sense of stability and security. It is a very approachable organization at every level.

    Cons

    Limited training opportunities and ability to move around the organizational units of which there are many. While I have seen more loyalty here than previous employers I think that would improve if there was opportunity to gain experience across the multi-faceted company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the smartest and accessible senior management teams I have worked with and I hope that continues.
