      Cool company, hard place to work

      Dec 20, 2021 - Senior Reporter in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of opportunity attack meaningful stories, grow your beat, and get a competitive salary in a shrinking media industry. Tons of editorial freedom, smart — I mean, super smart — folks in the newsroom. Inspiring to work in a place where everyone's breaking awesome stories on a near-daily basis.

      Cons

      Everything is analytics-driven, for both the positives and negatives. Journalism shouldn't be reduced to, like, hitting sales targets, but here it is. It's a pressure cooker. A lot of language around taking breaks etc, but ultimately the people who are rewarded are on 24/7. Pressure to write takedowns or salacious hit pieces to get subscribers. Unclear path to promotion, lots of favoritism.

      Uninspiring

      Dec 13, 2021 - Senior Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Engineering team , enjoyed working with my peers. Good design team.

      Cons

      Product - nothing here is innovative and are just copying what competitors do, looking at what is cool at the time rather than what makes sense strategically. The product team seem ok at execution but have poor product sense and product experience (heavily weighted towards revenue/sales/marketing rather than building products users need) compared to previous tech companies I’ve worked for. It’s honestly like the blind leading the blind. If you’re looking to just lazily execute without caring about the product, this is the place for you.
