My manager is supportive, easily accessible and does not fail to go to bat for his team both internally and customer-facing."

    Pros

    If you're really passionate about writing and learning new things, then this is your dream job. It's not for the faint of heart, and you'll be expected to make sense of complex legal issues very quickly, reducing them down to engaging stories for a readership comprised mostly of lawyers. Many cases are fascinating to pick apart, many are tough to get a handle on, and every day is different.
    Editors are supportive and on-hand to help with anything you're not sure about.
    The company is also generous with pay, and expects a lot in return. Work/life balance isn't ideal, but that may be because I'm new and still getting a grip on things.

    Cons

    It's a brain taxing job. Don't even think about coming to work tired, because you're expected to be on the ball at all times! Editors expect a lot, which isn't a bad thing but can be on that rare off-day.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ALM (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was actually very easy, and comfortable. I actually really liked the manager who hired me, but he left soon after I started to take another position in the company so I had to work for another manager who I did not like.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were about my experience in sales, but there were also questions about what I personally liked to do in my free time.   Answer Question
