Former Employee - Media Specialist

I worked at Business Wire full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Great team to work with, very understanding of work-life balance. - Company is focused and allows employees to play to their strengths - Motivated employees are giving opportunities to advance... - I really enjoyed my time and made some great friends

Cons

- I sat beside someone in Marketing who surfed the web all day, he did nothing. - He should have been fired right away.
