Don't believe the hype
Reporter/Editor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 27, 2015
This place is like college 2.0. Management have no idea what they're doing. The big sell is their office culture, free lunches and job seminars.

Salaries are a joke, there's little to no job advancement but there's free beer and no shortage of high school level maturity.

Come here if you're in need of a resume filler or you're in between jobs and desperate but I would avoid all together. You can do better.
Pros
Free lunches two days out of the week
Cons
No job advancement, management is a joke

Follow your dreams — which aren't BuzzFeed
Business (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 31, 2015
Yeah it's fun and there is a froyo machine and free lunch twice a week, but most likely, you will find this place to be incredibly unfulfilling.

Management is horrible, HR doesn't listen to you, salaries are an absolute JOKE. Don't come here expecting to make any money. Don't even come here expecting to raise the ranks in any meaningful way. Take your ambition and go somewhere that's not a meme factory.
