    Pros

    Great brand(s) that attract smart people. You will meet talented individuals and gain tons of experience. Flexible time off policy and extremely casual dress code. Impressive on CV.

    Cons

    New York Media is a 50-year-old startup that excels at concealing its many flaws and shortcomings to those on the outside. Expect low pay, long hours, no feedback, and little to no support, whether it be onboarding (doesn't exist) or meaningful feedback. Internal processes are nonexistent, inconsistent, or horrifically inefficient. The culture is soul-crushing. Zero morale and depressingly cliquey. There is little...

    I worked at New York Magazine full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Flexible work environment - Unlimited vacation policy - Good, respected brand

    Cons

    - Unpleasant, demotivating company culture. It truly doesn't seem like anybody is happy. The negativity is crippling! - Leadership is allover the place. Nobody knows who reports to who, or who does what. It's impossible to get a straight answer about *literally* anything. - Upper management is inexperienced. - There is no process or structure in this organization. It is the wild wild west. - Abysmal communication...
