    I worked at Brant Publications as an intern

    Pros

    People were nice and enjoyed the small company atmosphere

    Cons

    Some monotonous work and sometimes had to find things to do for myself.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisor should try to find some new things. Did a lot of same things over and over.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Treated nicely and promptly on editorial side. I had to transcribe a major interview for the magazine as a freelancer, and any questions or concerns I had were responded to quickly and professionally. Looks good on the resume.

    Cons

    It's been nearly a year and I haven't been paid.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your freelancers.

    Pros

    As long as you know someone who worked there, the interview process for an intern position was very easy. It's always good to have some major related experience shows on your resume.

    Cons

    Nothing much to learn. The company just need free interns work for them.

    Advice to Management

    No comment.


  6. "Excellent place to intern."

    Pros

    Everyone was very nice and eager to give me projects. I learned a lot just by being in the busy environment.

    Cons

    Most of the responsibilities were basic administrative tasks. Not very challenging.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Brant Publications as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Open office plan means it is very easy to talk to full-time staff and network if you take the initiative.

    Cons

    A lot of busywork, and I didn't feel as if I was actually learning anything at this internship. I heard that the CEO cut full-time staff and replaced them with unpaid interns in order to fund his private jet. That definitely doesn't help office morale.

    Advice to Management

    If you advertise that you subsidize transportation, pay up. I have been calling the office every month to get my transportation stipend that is now over a year late. It is absurd!

    I worked at Brant Publications as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Pleasant people to work with
    - Flexible hours
    - College Credit Available
    - Good to learn the basics of Human Resource Management
    - Manager often had supplementary reading on best HR Practice

    Cons

    - Upper management refuses to update IS systems. Everything is on paper
    - My boss told me that she would write a letter of recommendation, but upon request refused claiming it was "company policy".
    - The whole company basically relies on unpaid interns
    -Low retention rate
    -Often found myself doing personal favors for upper management (picking up prescriptions, online shopping, picking up gifts across NYC)
    - Little training and direction from management

    Advice to Management

    - Update your information system
    - Stop forcing interns to run personal favors

    I worked at Brant Publications full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Definitely a good starter if you're looking to start out in a real office environment with an experienced staff to sponge off from. Majority of peers are definitely team players. Location near NYU is great for students.

    Cons

    upper management lives in the dark ages. So much paper work that can be easily avoided without disrupting the chain of command. A lot a side task that have nothing to do with your job description along with constant micro management. Plus, threatening termination every time there is a set back isn't exactly a positive motivator. There are also a lot of unpaid interns filling the roles of what should be regular paid workers.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely needs to ease up on micro management. Should move up to the digital age a little, all that paperwork processing is too inefficient for all the time sensitive task.
