Hearst Media, unfortunately, is a declining business. From an employee standpoint, this isn’t a place you go to for 30 years. I’d recommed 2 or 3.
Most of their media assets will be a lot smaller or won’t be around in 15-20 years (some sooner). They are struggling to grow their digital assets, partly due to their management. So how does Hearst keep pace with the Googles and Facebooks? They cut costs (AKA firing or laying off employees). Odds are they’ll keep reorganizing the businesses (firing employees) until they aren’t profitable anymore.
The culture here has gotten toxic. There is a lot of infighting and backstabbing amongst management. They constantly fight with each other. A lower level employee always gets blamed for their mistakes.
Women get hit on a lot especially by executives of the firm. They always try to flirt with people. That’s how they communicate eight women. I wonder what their goals are with these women.
Minorities barely have a chance to move up. Many of these racist executives like them at lower levels but won’t give them an opportunity to move up despite being better than their peers. They may even pull 1950s Jim Crow nonsense to get them to quit. They will make insensitive comments based on their race. They will racially abuse them and try to get other people in on it. Note this is behavior coming from the executives and directors of the firm.
Hearst has a poor, depressed culture caused by bad behavior from executives and an overall declining business filled with poor digital investments.
