High risk and low reward. They have been floundering and had staff reductions. Print driven media is struggling... even with a great platform like Medium. They won't go under but will likely be acquired by someone like Group9 or WashPo. Acquisition will be below last valuation so your stock won't pay off. Go there if you want good experience at a well run company. Don't go there if you think you will be there long term or get some payout.

Thank you for the insight! I agree that it’s a high risk in that they don’t seem to have quite figured out what they’re want to be yet. The subscription model was met with a ton of resistance but seems to be gaining traction in the last year or so. I think the learning opportunity is big in what would be an increased role for me. They have potential if they can figure out a growth strategy quickly.

Their CEO is the founder of Twitter, which intrigued me. Could be a high risk, high reward play.
