    I have been working at Salon Media Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is exceptionally intelligent and friendly. Zero workplace politics. An exuberance of freedom and flexibility. And overall a company you can be proud to say you work for.

    Cons

    While the health benefits are very comprehensive, the salary compensation is kind of on the low end. And there isn't really a lot of opportunity for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. People really appreciate when you're not breathing down their neck and trust that they will deliver quality work on time with just the right amount of direction.

  2.  

    Hollow support for the American worker: they pay their writers nothing.

    I worked at Salon Media Group as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    People will see your work on Salon. They may assume you have been reasonably compensated for the time you've put in.

    Cons

    For all the articles they run about the outrage of unpaid internships, they pay an awful lot of writers a $100-honorarium per article for work that may require hours of research and reporting. While they tag articles "workers rights," they're screwing their own workers by demanding we work for next to nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your workers with money, rather than with the promise of "visibility."
