    I have been working at Vice Media full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Just look past some of the annoying start-up culture stuff (think snacks + roof gardens + pilates), and you'll be working alongside some of the best minds in media. Unlike some of the more tech oriented start-ups and new media companies, this one is clearly content and creative first, which means you have the freedom to pretty much pursue any good story idea as long as it has a real mission and point of view. I love my colleagues.
    Dogs in the Venice office. Awhoooo!

    Cons

    Growing pains like any rapidly growing company, but the company seems to be genuinely committed to taking the right steps and recognizes the need to keep its staffers happy.

    Advice to Management

    Switch up the snacks!

    Editor Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vice Media.

    Interview

    Had several in person interviews with the team. Overall process is pretty easy and nothing was challenging. However I felt a little weird interviewing with the team because I had more experience than everyone I interviewed with, throughout the interview the team seemed keen on asking me for ideas and suggestions on Vice can improve.

    Received an offer from them a few weeks later. The salary was roughly about a 30% drop from what I was making. I had stated my salary requirements upfront so it was surprising that they tried to lowball me. I did not try to negotiate and moved forward with another offer. Frankly I am 100% sure they used my interviews as an opportunity to get ideas on how to improve their strategy. and got some ideas for free. This wasn't an opportunity or company I was very excited about so I was happy to have had another offer to move forward with. On the plus side the team was friendly and the office was nice.
