    Pros

    A specific audience that you can write for and practice diverse stories
    Depending on editor, can get good feedback
    Good start for new writers interested in online media esp. in urban/black media space

    Cons

    Editorial expectations and structure can be disorganized
    Email communication can be unprofessional at times
    Sometimes editors can act on emotion instead of logic and professionalism
    Favoritism occurs
    Pay not high enough after you get experience under your belt
    Will sometimes be VERY late on their payments (Specific to freelancers)
    Also expects a lot for pay that is low/average
    Revolving door makes it feel like it's unstable
    Lets people go without seemingly good reasons
    Higher ups come off as high and mighty

    Advice to Management

    Get organized
    Stop playing favorites
    You could be a really great org if you had more foresight and kept good writers/staff on for longer than just the brief moment you consider them flavor of the month
    Stop trying to be everything to everybody. You're not the Root, you let go of all your quality people who could help you get there so really, try to focus on choosing something and being that.

    I worked at Interactive One full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had an incredible boss and some great co-workers who I consider good friends to this day. Salary was fair and we partnered with some very cool companies. They were pretty flexible with scheduling and vacation. Overall, I enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    There was a lot of turnover. People sometimes felt under-valued by management. Benefits were decent, not great. There were a few affairs with upper management that became common knowledge; that was less than beneficial for company culture -- but didn't affect me.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the incredible talent that you have. Focus on career growth and development or you will lose the top performers.
