I have been working at Remedy Health Media full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Talented and dedicated team, supportive and collaborative work environment, work hard play hard atmosphere, great office locations: Washington DC metro area and New York City.

Cons

There aren't any real cons. As a young company, practices and programs are being reviewed and changed for the better all time.

    I worked at Remedy Health Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally every one tries and talks about doing the right thing for the team and the investors. However the reality is the actions are self serving, politic and in some instances unethical (exhibit A: traffic buys to deliver on programs that were sold based on organic traffic promises)

    Cons

    If you are interested in creating great content or building good products this is not the place for you. If you are intrested in delivering sales at any cost (including long term damage) then you will love it here. Nothing here is done with a long term view. They want to be bought out.
    There are lots of politics. People get burned. Push hard for the salary you want. Don't settle. You will get it.
    The most unethical head of sales I have ever met essentially runs the company. Yep you will love it for sure.

    Pros

    Good hours and depending upon your group you can get flexible work from home time.

    Cons

    - Huge financial issues worry employees that we could be out of business any day.
    - No true HR to report issues to.
    - No communication to the employees.
    - Managers/Execs are never in the office. Only the junior people are expected to come in.
    - Editorial has no mission and content is terrible except on The Body and The Body Pro
    - Pay is lower than the competition. Raises are rare and tiny. No bonuses.
    - There is no room for growth.
    - Board members, especially one who is in the office daily, lead the company down terrible paths (print). He insisted upon hiring his friend/fellow investor to "work" for the company aka delegate terrible ideas that lost LOTS of money, while his friend raked in a considerable paycheck and others went without raises and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Treat employees with respect and equality.
    - Communicate with your staff.
    - Tell them about additional vacation time and PTO in advance so they can plan, not a week before. It's not a perk if you can't use it.
    - Hire a professional HR person who employees can handle issues professionally.
    - Hold managers accountable to actually come in and work.
    - Get the financials in order. How this even got so bad under your watch is wild and concerning.
    - Establish culture with execs and values that you intend to uphold yourself.
