Good relaxed place to work with clear goals
Business (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaJune 10, 2018
I love my job. Expectations are clearly defined. Where it falls short is advancement. There are no clear goals in place for career advancement. As a result I'm stuck in a weird guessing game of doing things that may be valuable and earn a promotion, or might be a complete waste of time that nobody uses or cares about. Given the amount of free time available - the lack of direction is very frustrating.
Pros
Very flexible working schedule
Cons
Lack of advancement

Take notes, this is how you run a company
Visual Features Editor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 1, 2018
Business Insider is run like a well-oiled, yet pleasant and compassionate machine. It comes from hiring the right people and then fitting them into a refined work structure where they are given the right amount of autonomy and support. I loved my supervisors and I loved my direct reports, in main part because of the office culture of clear, positive communication. I may not have been a perfect fit in terms of culture (not quite a business/politics wonk), but I never met anyone I didn't get a long with or feel encouraged by. A really fun, rewarding place to be.
Pros
Fantastic work culture and environment, great management systems, beer fridge
Cons
A little reliant of clickbait tactics

I enjoyed my time
Entertainment Reporter (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 8, 2018
It was a great place to learn, but the pay was not great. I'm not sure that I would look for another position there because of this. Otherwise I enjoyed my time there.

Can be a cool place to work, but journalism is not its highest value
Video intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 25, 2017
poor management, some good reporting, huge emphasis on clicks as the metric of success. The company is led by a disgraced wall street analyst who straddles business and editorial — highly inappropriate at a news organization. It's a company where their superstitions are taken as facts.
Pros
free snacks and beer
Cons
journalism with a shaky intergrity

Young, fast moving company, with a ping pong room
Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 7, 2017
BI is a fun, fast paced company that acts like a start up. The jobs offer a fair amount of autonomy and a broad global reach for content. However, staff turnover is rapid across all departments. And the expected workload is hefty considering the below competitive wages.
