    Pros

    free breakfast served by the lovely Rosita. very cool views from the Watergate offices. proximity to Gerogetown a plus for long Friday lunches. get to bump into famous political writers (cool if you're immersed in the political world). quality publication which is a product that's easy to believe in.

    Cons

    cubical lab. quiet office. the atlantic company's reorganization to compete with Politico meant that they practically fired the entire office -- sad scary time to be with the company. boring office culture: no activities for team bonding, no gym or gym membership perks to help with work-life balance, low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    appreciate the worker-bees a bit more and they may appreciate the company back.

    A good place to work

    I have been working at National Journal

    Pros

    A lot of great people work here, and overall it is a nice place to work.

    Cons

    As an organization it is still trying to figure out how to be as efficient and effective as possible, and that can create some confusion while it tries to figure everything out. However, this could also be viewed as a plus since it is essentially a positive disruption.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice to give upper management.
