Top 4 Reasons Why We Are Proud to Work at U.S. News

“Working at U.S. News is great. Our production site is entirely in the cloud and we are constantly leveraging more and more of the tools available there to our advantage. The job is always changing which is in part challenging, but extremely exciting. We have a great work balance culture, but when time comes to release big features, the team is really willing to work together to accomplish the goals. I strongly recommend joining the team and being a part of creating some of the best content for consumers and organizations to make informed life decisions.”
Pedro G., DevOps Team Lead, 3+ year veteran
“U.S. News & World Report recognizes the importance of investing in their own people. Since day one of working here, my managers have helped me advance my career and have demonstrated a willingness to create opportunities for me to grow. I love coming to work to collaborate with a team of hard working and talented colleagues that motivate each other to succeed. As an advertising sales manager, I’m proud to be representing a trusted brand with a clear mission in the marketplace.”
Ivy Z., Advertising Sales Manager, 7+ year veteran
“I’m proud to work at a publication that was always in my house growing up. The professionals here are top-notch – talented, innovative and supportive. While at U.S. News, I’ve had the opportunity to serve on the Women in the Workplace committee, take advantage of professional development opportunities and learn from my wonderful colleagues. It’s a great place to work.”
Whitney W., Senior Editor, 4+ year veteran
“After graduating from college, my aspiration was to work in media, and I was fortunate to land at U.S. News & World Report. I walked into an environment that was welcoming, supportive and nurturing, and fostering what turned out to be life-long relationships. I had several editors and others who took a personal interest in me. They were available if I needed assistance and always advised me to challenge myself. Now, nearly 40 years and a few promotions later, the company’s greatest asset is still its people. I find the staff talented, creative and resourceful. And as a testament to U.S. News, many of my former colleagues continue to cite the company as the best place they’ve ever worked. For me, it feels like home.”
