Featured Review
"Great!"Jan 6, 2016

I have been working at BuzzFeed

Pros

Amazing company to work for. Very open, very liberal. They want everything to have a voice. Nothing is off limits.

Cons

Literally nothing. They are one of the best companies I have ever worked with in my time as a writer. And they pay well!

Advice to Management

Nothing. Keep doing everything you're doing. This is such an amazing company to work for and grow with.
