    I worked at Everyday Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great open office, nice people. Fruit in the mornings. Ziff'sownership of EH has pushed some of its former managers out. Which is not a bad thing. Previous senior management, especially on the executive side were like high school boys and girls hanging out in their little cliques. Favoritism ran rampant. It was difficult to watch.

    Cons

    Free vending machines, but not healthy snacks as you would expect of a company like this. Company lacks identity and culture.

    Advice to Management

    Ziff executives should find ways to communicate and become more integrated with the EH folks. The company lacks a culture since it's acquisition.

    I worked at Everyday Health full-time

    Pros

    The location and office view is probably the only good thing.

    Cons

    There is an ever changing management team with complete lack of leadership. The company is drowning thanks to operational inefficiency, litigation and horrible management.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hire someone who can actually run a company?

    Pros

    You get a great work-life balance there.
    The pay is bad for large cities but it is great for a small town like Asheville.

    Cons

    The company grew from 80 to 180 so it could be sold for maximum dollars. Now it is back to around 80 with a strong need to find a new direction.

    Advice to Management

    Senior mgmt in New York needs to listen to their people more. Especially listen better to those in remote offices.

    I worked at Everyday Health full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers and decent benefits

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. All of the dynamic leaders have either been let go or quit. No vision, goals, or employee development. Focus is completely on making money.

    Advice to Management

    Pull back and focus on your employees. Build, train, and develop talent. Provide strong talented leadership.

    I worked at Everyday Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Before the acquisition by Ziff Davis, it was a professional, high paced environment with good leadership support. Good job, good pay. Enjoyed the work itself. Autonomous work environment.

    Cons

    I was just cut in the 3rd round of layoff on the Pro team. We have watched all of our trusted leaders go and new ones move into place. There was not proper training. Very negative environment now that all the layoffs had happened. It is no longer a stable environment and wanted to make sure another applicant doesn't have the same experience

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut all your good talent and expect things to get better.
    Taking care of your employees will make sure your company moves well. You destroyed this company in this merger and I doubt it will recover. Taking away raises and promotions for a year is NOT how you get people motivated to help you succeed.

    I worked at Everyday Health (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly collaborative people that are willing to help and mentor, decent happy hours, relaxed work environment, the office is close to the west village.

    Cons

    no recognition for good work, getting processes changed for the better is impossible, management is ineffective and plays favorites with literally no shame, no stability in a few key departments, the holiday party got canceled out of the blue with no announcement

    Advice to Management

    people aren't happy there, do better.

    Pros

    Helpful, understanding co-workers.
    Flexible and permissive towards working from home.

    Cons

    Reorganizes, including extensive lay-offs, every year or two. Projects and opportunities often disappear in media res. Perpetually starting over is unsettling.
    Mentoring, training, and advancement opportunities used to be real, but not for the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training employees! Assume they want to grow and learn.
    Hiring cut rate employees overseas actually lowers productivity if the low performers are never let go.

    Pros

    Free Fruit and a nice location in the West Village

    Cons

    Constant layoffs and a tons of people leaving voluntarily. You get the sense that Ziff Davis knows nothing about the healthcare vertical. In the year since Ziff Davis acquired the company, we have heard from the CEO maybe once. Leadership did a good job at the acquisition announcement convincing us they would invest in their people, but it has become increasingly obvious that they are only about the bottom line. No transparency. No direction. No leadership. No investment in employees. Don't let the upcoming 5 star reviews padded by HR fool you. I don't see this company making a comeback.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. This place has been ruined.
