    I worked at TheBlaze TV full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and work environment.
    Innovative and smart leadership on business development side.
    Idealistic, start-up atmosphere.

    Cons

    There are no clear paths for advancement and professional growth.
    Editorial leadership should put more effort into broadening the site's audience.
    Company is still too dependent on one person.

    Advice to Management

    Better integrate the editorial team with the rest of the company's staff.
    Use increased revenue to hire more writers rather than repeated meaningless promotions for certain staff just because they got in on the ground floor.

    I worked at TheBlaze TV full-time

    Pros

    My years at the Blaze were the best yet in terms of professional relationships. I will say the company attracted incredible, good-hearted, hardworking people. And if you're creative and a renaissance man, you'll have a lot of freedom to blaze your own trail.

    Cons

    The constant shifts in direction and mission and the turnover in leadership all leave you feeling very rudderless.

    I worked at TheBlaze TV full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Respectable work and plenty of opportunities to contribute to the whole. Admirable effort to find the truth and give a voice to the average American.

    Cons

    Management is amateur. Entire enterprise revolves around one man, and most everything and everyone is sidelined because of that. Too many people going in too many different directions.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there's a more efficient division of labor, and listen to the little guy at the base of the corporate ladder.

    Pros

    people were willing to show me around
    i had a lot of freedom to decide what to work on
    got to work in almost every department
    outlook of getting hired was good
    ceo and president were very inspiring and positive, but they both left soon after my internship ended
    pay was average/good for an internship!

    Cons

    gave me too much freedom to decide as an intern
    some supervisors were cliquey and exclusive/not very helpful because i was an intern
    didn't get a great vibe from higher-ups about the future of the company, so i didn't even apply to work full time after graduation
