    Pluspunten

    For young business and tech journalists getting started, this is a great place to get a lot of freedom in exploring local startup communities and telling stories that other publications are not watching. There's no shortage of angles to seek out and investigate.

    Minpunten

    This is a company that's basically in its third stage of evolving, now as a closer part of the larger family of ACBJ media properties. Past transitions could have been managed better, but communications and mission clarity have come into focus much better in the past year.

    Advies aan management

    Offer clear paths for growth. Keep trying new approaches to newsletters and other channels as the media landscape evolves.

    Pluspunten

    The workplace environment is casual and friendly, but there's a great opportunity to learn a lot and be involved in high level decision-making. The team is small so there's a lot of time spent working between departments and with all levels of management. People get along well and it's enjoyable to spend time with co-workers. We prioritize regular social activities and events (both inside and outside work) to keep morale high. Overall, a great experience and getting even better.

    Minpunten

    You definitely have to make an effort to be proactive as possible when working across departments. It's a busy scene and at times difficult to stay on top of all tasks concurrently.

    Advies aan management

    Growing the team further to fill in the gaps would be beneficial. There are areas on the administrative side get overlooked sometimes.

    At a loss. The last posting here says "Moving in the right direction" but that can't be true unless the right direction is due south to Hell.

    Minpunten

    This company pretends to succeed but it's clearly foundering. Its site traffic is stagnant at best, it has lost site and grasp of its core readers, it has had to demote editors, it thinks relying on freelancers will help keep it afloat, it has no idea how to build a formidable editorial staff, it publishes so-called articles which have little to no factual credibility or reputable sources, it thinks it can compete in other cities and it still thinks Galen Moore can steer the ship.

    Do not read this site unless you want to be uninformed and laughed at by your peers.

    Advies aan management

    Hire actual writers. Publish actual news. It's not too late for the parent company to shake things up.

    -Recent change in management has brought an energetic, experienced, and talented president to the helm who I'm confident will lead the company in a great direction and is already doing so...previous president caused a lot of damage to the business and morale
    -Extremely smart and gifted staff that is empowered to drive the business forward
    -Excellent reputation and standing in each of its markets

    Minpunten

    -In a transitional phase, but this is common for media companies and will eventually straighten itself out in a positive way

    Advies aan management

    Continue to lead us to greatness; the path ahead looks rosy.

    Pluspunten

    Like-minded employees, relaxed environment, flexible hours, generous vacation time and work from home time, social environment.

    Minpunten

    Very little direction from leadership, until recently a ship without a captain, no visible growth path, pay is lower than comparable roles at other companies, people leaving left and right after management shift.

    Advies aan management

    Pay people more, retain key talent, keep working towards new goals after ousting poor management.

    Recently, Streetwise Media came under new management and I am very confident the company is headed in the right direction on both the editorial and business sides of the company. Our new management team is experienced, confident, creative, smart and innovative, and the ideas they're bringing to the company are very promising. I'm very excited about the next chapter of Streetwise Media!

    Minpunten

    We've had some departures especially on the sales side and will need to get new people up to speed fast.

    Advies aan management

    Be transparent, and listen to employee ideas and feedback.

    Pluspunten

    Streetwise is an office full of really awesome and smart people. We recently had a management change and so far the results have been positive. Laid back environment, flexible schedule, awesome events and unlimited vacation. The commission structure is changing in a very positive way.

    I think it's important for potential job seekers to pay attention to the newest posts. The old posts are the results of past management.

    Minpunten

    The pay is good, but could be a little stronger. I think this has potential to change under new management. They seem really focused on making positive changes.

    Advies aan management

    Promote from within. Consider making salary a bit more competitive

    Pluspunten

    Streetwise is in a turning point of its growth, and I think there are a lot of opportunities for employees to help positively shape that direction and be a part of the company's success. The people are great and very fun to work with, which is a major perk.

    Minpunten

    With any change, there's been some turnover and a period of getting people up to speed with the new processes.

    Advies aan management

    Continue to be transparent and open.

    Pluspunten

    Cancerous executives gone, time to axe the EIC.

    Minpunten

    EIC talks much, knows little, acts wrongly, lacks leadership, can't write, unintelligible news sense, traffic obsessed, laughing stock of Boston media community.

    Advies aan management

    I'd say purge all BostInno editors but they're now the entire staff. If you want readers, replace EIC at least
