    I have been working at Gawker Media full-time

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits, solid perks for all editorial staff as a result of our union. Sites are run autonomously, which is fantastic if you want to build a career as a reporter.

    Cons

    Still some fallout and uncertainty from the buyout. Lawsuits are scary. The media industry is always unstable, so who knows what the company will look like in a year or two?

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating, keep staying positive, try to settle as many lawsuits as possible. Spend more time looking towards the future and less time chasing trends that our competitors are better at.

    Interview

    I had the opportunity to meet with employees from different departments with varying seniority. It gave great perspective into how the company is trying to evolve as a whole. Employees were either very appreciatively frank and realistic, or enthusiastic and hopeful. Good mix of people to want to work with.

    The interview seemed organic like a conversation.
