    I have been working at Grist

    Pros

    Org embraces new tools and technologies. Open to employees working remotely and having a flexible work schedule. Great opportunity to work with lots of smart and talented people.

    Cons

    Not the best at making the staff feel valued. Turnover is high which prevents org from progressing to its highest potential. Senior management is working to address these issues, but the dysfunction remains pretty high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people and trust them to do the work you hired them to do.

    I worked at Grist full-time

    Pros

    Some passionate, nice people who genuinely believe in being green and sustainable, with a sense of humor were there. Interesting visitors all the time.

    Cons

    CEO and Senior staff (writers and fundraising) are cliquey and are not open to other viewpoints. Always chasing money for fundraising, which felt more important than the readers and issues. No sense of humor from Senior staff. Sadly, I never got a clear sense of direction about where the website was headed, it was always looking at what other sites were doing and trying to copy them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are other people who work for you besides the writers. Listen to other points of view and stop being so stubborn. Let your readers have fun and show some humor. What happened to being edgy and a little controversial?
