    Pros

    The people are the best part about working at Grist. Sadly in the time I have been there, many people have left.

    Cons

    The turnover rate is extremely high. The management and the overall running of the company is unorganized. The "vision" is constantly being discussed and updated much to the chagrin of the non-managerial staff. There is also a massive gap in pay and treatment of managers vs non-managers, including but not limited to Grist paying for transportation and furnished apartments in the most expensive neighborhood in Seattle for management staff who only live there a few days out of the week. Grist is very negligent about hiring people of color and the staff is 99% white, despite a lot of talk about being diverse and inclusive.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people of color. Don't waste money on apartments for the managers. Distribute the salaries more evenly.

    I worked at Grist full-time

    Pros

    Many talented writers and editors. Positions open up frequently. Good place to build up clips. 

    Cons

    Toxic management, endless meetings about vision, huge pay differences, constant staffing churn, general cluelessness around supporting POC staff and interns.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the people who do most of the work of running the operation and get out of the way.
