Pros

On the editorial side, people are both incredibly good at their jobs and giving of their time and knowledge to younger employees.

Cons

There is generally more opportunity for growth on the business side of the company, but it varies throughout the different publications, which have very different cultures within the larger Atlantic Media umbrella.

Advice to Management

Continue being transparent with employees about the state of the company, keep moving away from DC stodginess, and bring back bagels.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    After working in several offices in and around DC, I can honestly say that I’ve found the best!

    Atlantic Media offers a great blend of private, entrepreneurial spirit and profit-driven, bottom line focus. It’s exciting to support an organization that promotes publications with the historic significance of The Atlantic and others with an in-depth overview of the DC political landscape and federal workforce (National Journal and Government Executive).

    People - co-workers seem to genuinely like coming to work and are fun to be around

    Work – doesn’t always feel like actual ‘work’

    Workspace – not your typical stuffy & robotic DC office – causal dress, open office floor plan,

    Location – we actually work in the Watergate complex!

    Cons

    - The work is fast-paced and the entire company seems to be moving at a fast clip, so it’s not ideal for everyone.

    - Trivial, but the office space limited lunch options until recently. Still a short walk to GW, but now there are multiple new options with more coming soon.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, you’ve created a fun, engaging and exciting company. Continue to focus on your people and the office environment as you grow the business and the company should flourish.
