    I have been working at Acuris full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Its a great work environment. Everyone is incredibly friendly, even though its a huge office with multiple products and departments in it (NYC).

    The work is really autonomous - my manager checks in on me but is not breathing down my back. You're told what you need to accomplish by the end of the year/quarter, and you're left to do it. Of course, you're surrounded by people who are happy to help.

    There is a great work/life balance. 20 days off per year, unlimited sick days, and no stigma around using them.

    We go out as a team for drinks or volunteer quite frequently, so you really do get to know everyone around you.

    Cons

    you work from 8:30-6:00, technically you have a hour long lunch but everyone eats at their desk, so it's a 9 1/2 hour day.

    There is a hierarchy of products. If you work for one of the smaller products within acuris you're not always prioritized and pushed to the sideline, which is incredibly frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    treat all products, and their respective employees, equally! by putting products in competition with one another and giving resources to only the top products you're creating a downward spiral for the smaller teams.

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated staff that is focused on breaking news and providing proprietary market information and analysis to a sophisticated readership. It's a nice place to work.

    Cons

    It's a wonky financial news service that won't be a good fit for journalists looking to write long features. M&A is the name of the game here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees better.
