    Pros

    Easy atmosphere. Room to be prompted.

    Cons

    The pay is well under what one would think. Titles are considered an intangible form of payment - as the assumption is you'll be moving on to get a job elsewhere and able to pitch the impressive title into a good salary.

  9. 2.0
    Former Employee, more than 3 years

    We did have a good product plan, but OMG, some of the managers

    Apr 13, 2018 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    1. Good Office and Good benefits (Including dental, health care and vacation policy ) 2. Good Resume build for Internship and early in career life because it's a famous company 3. Work-Life Balance

    Cons

    1. The salary is literally half of the average. 2. The biggest problem in the company is 'the managers'. Yes, with 's'. They are not professional enough to handle their jobs. Some managers can only be able to mention worthless points in the emails, in order to get attention and try to not be outshined by their subordinates. Some managers can't understand the products' logic well enough even they have already been reminded couple times before. The lack of the communication between managers causes that some tickets are going to release, and then being pushed back because other groups find the ticket mess up their products. And even a new product is almost done, people finally find that there is no stakeholder for it, because every manager thinks 'there should be someone...'. We did have a good product plan and we almost made it. We did have some managers who help us to get over the problems and get the work done. But why do so many talented people left in these six months?

  11. 5.0
    Current Employee

    Contributor role is entrepreneurial and flexible, but doesn't pay much.

    Apr 9, 2016 - Media & Entertainment Contributor in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Writing as a Forbes contributor is so entrepreneurial, and very much on your own schedule (within the requirement of five articles/month). I pursue the stories that I want and they get exposure.

    Cons

    The Forbes website is sort of clunky and has a lot of ads—this is only a complaint about the site interface, not the job itself. Also the contributor salary is paltry but the exposure is priceless.
