At Consumer Reports, we’re building a diverse workforce that reflects our society, embraces new ways of thinking, celebrates a wide breadth of experiences, and reflects all of the audiences we serve.
Inclusion means valuing the uniqueness that each staff member brings by creating an environment where everyone is welcome. Our objective is simple: for all employees to feel supported so that they’re set up for success.
Every day, in every job, our employees make a difference for consumers and society. Whether we’re testing products in our labs or on our test track, exposing scams through fearless investigations, or advocating for policies that serve and protect consumers’ interests, we make an impact on people’s lives.
From product developers and software engineers to writers, editors, and policy experts, we work together to champion consumer interests.
Sure, we have best-in-class medical, dental, and vision benefits, but our wellness programs also help you build and maintain a healthy mind and body. Exercise classes, gym reimbursement, and nutrition counseling are just a few ways we help you bring your whole self to work.
We ask you to work hard for consumers—but in exchange, our vacation, illness, and holiday schedules allow you time to recharge. Add in amenities such as farm-to-table produce deliveries, on-site dry cleaning service, and an employee assistance program to help manage life’s unexpected challenges, and life feels like less work.
Expand Your Horizons
We offer our employees an integrated approach to professional development. A combination of on-site training, e-learning, external training, and tuition reimbursement set you up for success and prime you for the next challenge.
Build Your Future
Our 401(k) and retirement plans offer a range of options to help prepare for the day you choose to stop working and take up skydiving or spelunking. With a variety of investment choices and an excellent employer match, your savings will grow right along with your career. As you build your future, you can also take advantage of our credit union to make the most of your money while you’re still working.
So, what do we do with all of those products we buy and test? Employee auctions! Benefits, such as ergonomic workspaces, free shuttle service and transit check reimbursements, company-funded dependent care reimbursements, and most importantly, a chance to work for one of the most trusted brands around, are just a few things that set us apart.

Nice work culture;
None I can think of!
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Consumer Reports (Yonkers, NY) in September 2017.
Had a brief call with an HR person. Then was invited to come in to meet. The HR person I was initially talking to was the worst. Took a while to schedule in person interview with group, like 2 weeks after intitial call. After the group interview, which was good, I requested he relay my thanks to everyone, which he didn't. Finally, was promised I would hear a followup the following week which I didn't I had to inquire a few times until I finally got an answer.
