      NY Office Could Use Some Help

      Pros

      It's a laid-back environment and the office itself is in a good location. The internships' full-time hours also gives one the opportunity to get a complete picture of how the company is run.

      Cons

      The NY office amassed an entire team of interns (the full-time-to-intern ratio was about 6-1) to build out the content on the U.S. site, while expressly leading interns to believe that there would be a plethora of full-time opportunities available within the company at the conclusion of their internships. It quickly became apparent that this was not the case, however, and multiple employees were relieved of their duties in a less-than-courteous manner. One employee, for example, was let go the day after management announced that she had been promoted from an intern to a full-time employee. Poor management aside, the U.S. branch of the company lacks a true voice and identity, and it is without a clear plan for how to make a name for itself within the U.S. editorial market.

      Pros

      The New York office is in a great location and is rather laid-back and diverse.

      Cons

      The entire NY team consists of nothing but underpaid interns who were sold a dream as far as what the job description said and what responsibilities ended up being. There was always a lot of confusion and lack of clarity regarding the future of this office and the editorial department itself, which DESPERATELY needs an experienced managing editor/eic to lead it. The management that opened this office lack the experience and skills to make it successful. There is no upward mobility—but when one intern did get hired full-time, she was fired the very next day. Despite attempts to keep this office in the loop with the headquarters in Munich, it often felt like the NY office was low on the totem pole of priority.
