    I worked at Harper's Magazine full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart editorial staff, deep literary history. Though incredibly conservative about change of any kind, the magazine has nonetheless taken journalistic risks over the years.

    Cons

    Publisher determined to run place into ground by not evolving the magazine in any way. His hatred (and farcical misunderstanding) of the internet is legendary, but even the print magazine has not been redesigned in more than 30 years. He fires or drives away good talent. A culture of fear rules.

    Advice to Management

    There's nothing management can do so long as the person holding the purse strings has his head in the sand. It's truly a long sad goodbye for Harper's.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harper's Magazine (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Initial email stating that application had been accepted and reviewed arrived within a week of applying. Follow up email to confirm that I had been selected for an interview and to schedule time arrived two or three weeks later. Interview lasted about half an hour and was conducted with two people from the art department. The atmosphere was relaxed and casual, though still professional.
