    I have been working at POPSUGAR full-time

    Pros

    The company really cares for their employees, and has created a unique, diverse, and healthy culture. I see it in the leadership and across the company, people working hard and having fun while doing it. A clear set of values, communicated to all employees.

    A respect for work/life balance.

    It's a very challenging industry, and POPSUGAR is first in so many of the strategies it takes.

    All Hands meetings with an emphasis on transparency, awareness of employee feedback, and accolades.

    Excellent offices, food, tech, and other perks.

    Cons

    As with any company, there are some who do not see or value the opportunities they have been presented with, and sometimes blame the company for this. It's a company where hard work and innovative thinking is recognized and rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep winning!

    Editorial Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at POPSUGAR (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I submitted an application and was asked to complete a writing sample within five days. This included five sample posts with photos and links, as well as answers to a few questions about the publications you read, the TV show you most like to watch, etc. Afterwards, I spoke with an editor on the phone. Then I had another round one in-person interviews with three members of the team.

    Power Your Happy

    Lisa Sugar has an amazing job. Her obsession with pop culture drove her to start writing POPSUGAR in 2005. A year later, she and her husband, Brian, joined forces, and they transformed her hobby into what is now the #1 independent media company for women.
