    I have been working at U.S. News & World Report full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It feels good to know that we're helping people through our advice journalism and the team is committed to creating high-quality content. It's what makes me want to come to work every day. I came from a pretty cutthroat newsroom that paid peanuts before coming to USN, so the salaries and benefits here are very competitive. We're also growing our team; almost every other month there's someone new joining us. It's hard to find stability these days, so it's comforting to know USN is growing and investing in journalism. We use data to help us create content that's relevant for our readers so we're not wasting our time and resources, which is smart. If you work hard, you will be recognized for your efforts. And if you have a great idea, management will make sure it's realized. Can't really find that at most places.

    Cons

    Wish there was more communication between verticals, especially editorial teams.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for investing in improving the CMS and new technology to help us do our jobs better. Please continue to do that!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. News & World Report in April 2018.

    Interview

    HR responded quickly to set up a phone screen. Was sent a technical assessment to do in under 3 days. The assessment was pretty simple, focusing on knowing relevant skills, rather than being a proxy for an IQ test. Had a phone interview with two software leads as well. Everyone in the process was friendly, and responded promptly to emails.
