    I worked at Boston Magazine for less than a year

    Pros

    Loved working for this company! Lots of knowledgable people. Kind, supportive, really want to know you as a person and as an employee. Was able to do some writing, and learn quite a bit about copy editing, proof reading, and fact checking.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to reach the editors and writers when getting in contact.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Boston Magazine for less than a year

    Pros

    Interns were able to be extremely involved with various teams. Had the opportunity to attend and work the events. The intern supervisors were helpful, genuine and allowed a large amount of room for growth with interns. I was able to use all of my knowledge from this internship position and apply it to future jobs.

    Cons

    I would have liked for there to be more career opportunities within the company.

    I worked at Boston Magazine for less than a year

    Pros

    Name recognition of working for the company

    Cons

    Very poor office culture, not an internship where they teach or mentor, you're there for the free labor. You're just this quarters new intern, don't expect much other than grunt work, failed to receive even an exit interview.
