Good place to cut your teeth
Editorial (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 30, 2017
It's a great place to learn journalism's ropes, and has great, very smart editors who know what they're doing. The highest higher-ups can't seem to figure out how to pay editorial properly, while lauding other departments for bringing in money (when they're bringing it in with editorial's help and on the strength of editorial's content). Some managers are amazing, some are amazingly subpar, and creativity tends to languish under their watch. Likewise, some managers are wonderful about allowing their subordinates flexibility (such as working from home) while others you'd think were being asked to lasso the moon.
Now, all of that said, if you try to reach out across departments (it isn't easy, but it is possible) and get assertive about opportunities, that can definitely work in your favor.
The view is unbelievable.
Opportunities for assertive employees, great editors
Uneven management, below-market pay
