    Pros

    The people are easy to get along with and nice for the most part.

    Cons

    The management is very stuck in their ways and run the place like a post office. They were years behind on jumping on SEO and didn't listen to advice from staff about how to make the website better and drive more traffic. Thus newer websites surpassed them and left them in the dust.

    Advice to Management

    You have to stay on top of the latest online trends and adjust your strategy accordingly.
    Tactics used to grow in the 1980s will not necessarily work in the 2010s.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Investors Business Daily (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I had to talk to two editors on the first visit. On a second visit, I met with them again, talked to another set of editors, the head of the HR and a vice president of the company.

    • They asked the usual questions such as why do you want to work there? How would you describe yourself? I don't recall any odd questions.   Answer Question
