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

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO policy, free fruit & coffee, most employees were friendly and helpful when they were actually in the office.

    Cons

    Company I worked for was acquired by Everyday Health 2 years ago. First year, things looked good, seemed like company was really focused on reorganizing for the better, NY office communicated regularly, etc. But the 2nd year, everything fell apart. They stopped communicating, there was no understanding of the primary focus and direction the company was headed as it was constantly in flux and employee turn-over became a regular thing, red-flags started popping up more and more. Sure enough, the end of 2016, they announced they were being acquired by another company. First thing that company did was lay-off lots of folks, but in a way that made it clear they were not thinking about what was best for the company, just a bottom-line on a piece of paper. I feel for the employees that remain in the chaos. There is distrust and a lack of teamwork when coworkers are expected to work together as everyone has been given different priorities. Projects are started and never finished, so everything feels like a waste of time. It's a shame because they could be accomplishing great things.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you want to do and stick with it. Stop creating layers of management that never fully accomplish anything. Communicate and make sure your vision is understood company-wide. Make sure all HR employees are on the same page-it creates distrust when employees receive conflicting information on a regular basis. Invest in and listen to the employees you have rather than always looking elsewhere and assuming that will solve all your problems.

    Pros

    Great range of talented people who know what they are doing and care about the company.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring allows for no focus. Just when you think everything has settled, they begin another reorg. Lack of communication and major disorganization from top management. The last year there was really unsettling.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on your actions. Give the next reorg a chance to develop. And if it's all about the "people" of the company, then put your money where your mouth is. Action speaks louder than just a lot of words.

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

    Pros

    Fruit, free snacks, free vending machines, free cold brew, free beer coming. Really strong people here. Best people I've ever seen at any company. Smart, driven, fun, focused.

    Lots of reorg has happened but all for the best. Company seems to be really getting on track. Most posts that are negative here are probably people who have been canned. No where is perfect but I'm very happy here and feeling better and better about the future.

    Priorities are getting in alignment with strategy and tactics. Things looking up!

    Casual dress. Stylish folks.

    Trending toward a more flexible work life balance including unlimited paid time off and the option for some people to work from home at times.

    Really seems like things are looking good in the months to come. Priorities at upper management are in line with company strategic needs.

    New CEO understands the business and what's important and how to move forward in the most efficient strategic way possible.

    Cons

    Reorg has had people scared but things are set now for a while. Vending machine has no chocolate. The beer has not yet arrived. Rugs are not that spotless. The walls need a bit of work. Recently acquired and so it is transition time, but seems like that part is past us.

    More sugar-free iced teas needed in the free drink fridge. Corporate events and happy hours are minimal.

    Pros

    Breakfast / food on mornings at the kitchen, and vacation days. Also talented people there.

    Cons

    Too much politics and lots of changes. It seems they don't know how to structure the departments and people are moved to a different team, and you don't know the reason why. On top of that it seems that you if you don't belong to an specific ethnic group you will not have same privilages.

    Pros

    great location, some great people work there, unlimited PTO was special.

    Cons

    judgmental, untrustworthy management, unstable work environment because of people at the top, CEO was either pretending to be inept and oblivious to the people who worked for him.

    I worked at Everyday Health full-time

    Pros

    They serve one type of fruit everyday in the kitchen but they not organic.

    Cons

    The leadership team motivate eachother to be judgemental and hateful against their own colleagues and partners at work. I have never met a group of people who are more manic and has zero understanding of what working together means or setting eachother for success entitles. I do not recommend this place to anyone. Please do trust the low stars in these reviews before you accept a job offer from Everyday Health.

    Advice to Management

    Do not give job offers to people if you're not there to set them up for success and/or give them a chance. In other words, grow up.
