    I worked at Politico

    Pros

    Cool learning opportunity, lots of great people

    Cons

    lots of people who'll stab you in the back if you're not looking. Lot's of sales reps that are half-ass political wanna be's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect with your employees, stop playing ivory tower.

    Poorly managed company--a bit like high school, very high turn-over

    I have been working at Politico full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The work will keep you busy (all hours of the day)!

    Cons

    Bad wprk culture, a bit like high school. Very cut-throat, which they actually pride themselves on. Poor management all around--senior leaders only talk to those in the "inner circle," while supervisors have no experience supervising! Also, no comp time offered or over-time pay, which would help with you work 6 days a week/14+ hours a day for very little money. It's not a shock that there's such high-turnover...people can't wait to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in your employees--offer management training to supervisors.

    I worked at Politico full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Politico has a good compensation program as well as a great benefits package, including top notch health insurance, time off, and long paid maternity/paternity leave.

    Cons

    The culture at Politico is subpar. Management doesn't really care about the average employee. They do not recognize life events like birthdays, service anniversaries, etc. Plus the 24 hour news cycle is a younger person's game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture is very important. You should look at incitive and award companies that help employers motivate employees.
