    I always wanted to work at buzz feed when im older but after seening videos about people quoting I felt discouraged and also scared of what they think of everyone. I still watch the Try Guys, Unsolved, and some others.

    Buzzfeed used to be a channel with relatable cute videos like the start of oddly satisfying, the hypochondria video (that was funny) Now it's basically a microcosm of first world society where they try WAY too hard to address issues that aren't that important or aren't even issues anymore (LGBT! SEXISM! MANSPREADING!) just keep beating a dead horse over and over and over and as a fifteen year old, I don't want to watch that.
    Buzzfeed tries way too hard nowadays and that's why I unsubscribed a long time ago.

    Not surprised about your experience as they seem this way plus heard about them firing people for ridiculous and discriminatory reasons. However, the part on 20 year olds making loads of money ... oh boy, let me tell you about this dude who got hired as a military PR consultant for the government in Poland - same case as you mention - was absolutely not a specialist or someone scarcely talented - got the job due to his parents and it is a major intelligence position as well.

    There are some kids who become surgeons or robotics engineers early on and if they have skill and on-the job experience ... they probably still not make millions. I would accept a million once xD, so I can safely invest it, then it would be plainly weird (and I am a bit older but still young).

    Micromanaging employee''s other actions (unless they have a stipulation against other work in contract) and basing a whole company on young people just receiving power suddenly is ... a disaster bound to happen. Possibly some are fine and deserve their positions but basing a media/semi-journalist company on SEO is ... hm ... superficial? I do enjoy how Cracked changed but no idea recently as they seem to stop their fact checks.

    *WOW, THIS REALLY OPENED MY EYES... MY DREAM FOR YEARS WAS TO WORK AT BUZZFEED. I HAD ALL THE CREDENTIALS AND WHAT NOT, BUT MY APPLICATION WAS NEVER EVEN REVIEWED. I EVEN REACHED OUT TO THEM MORE THAN ONCE JUST BECAUSE I WAS THAT DETERMINED AND THAT INFATUATED WITH BUZZFEEDS CONTENT.. WELL, MOST OF IT. BUT THEN THINGS CHANGED, I CANT EXPLAIN WHY, BUT IDK.. I JUST SORT OF STOPPED WATCHING THEIR VIDEOS, AND NOW IM SEEING THE TRUTH ABOUT THEM. THIS WAS SUPER INFORMATIVE, YOURE INCREDIBLY INTELLECTUAL AND INTELLIGENT, AND I REALLY WISH YOU WERE MY FRIEND! ITS SO RARE TO COME ACROSS SUCH PROGRESSIVE THINKERS, AND OPEN MINDED PEOPLE. AND I FELT THE SAME WHEN I MOVED TO LA FROM OC.. BUT ANY WAY I WILL STOP RAMBLING AND I JUST HAVE TO SAY YOU SEEM SOOOO DOWN TO EARTH AND HUMBLE, AND IM DEFINITELY SUBSCRIBING TO YOUR CHANNEL! THANK YOU FOR BEING CANDID AND HONEST. AND HELL YEAH FOR DIVERSITY!*
    P.S: YOUR MAKE UP IS STUNNING! THOSE EYES, OMGAHH!

    When you decide to work at a company who is known for making videos and content, you cannot complain and bitch about not owning the content. your salary is there way of paying you for the content. if you want to own your content then never work for a social media company..... GEEEEEEZ all this quitting. Be happy you have a job.

    Thank you for coming out with all of this! It's nice to hear an honest idea about what Buzzfeed really is because for a while it's been a very mysterious company. They have many viewers that hardly know anything about the people, the business and everything else that comes along with a company so it's very useful for everybody to finally understand how Buzzfeed functions behind the videos :)

    I know the feeling I've been threw the same thing in a high end fashion company. They have you as a temp for as long as they want and you never know when they are going to fire you. Long story short if you didn't kiss ass to managers you did not get hired. I am far from a kiss ass & I let my hard work make the shots. I was used to trained so many people and they let the "teacher go and kept the student". Lessoned learned, and best thing about it was I never changed who I am to get hired and I'm happy I didn't. BE WHO YOU ARE & F%#K WHAT PPL THINK!! There lost! HAHA
