You totally hit it on the head. Working at Disney REALLY ruins that magic they have for the guests. That analogy was awesome!

so it's like a pyramid scheme...sort of???

Me: Hi I'd like to work at buzzfeed.
Buzzfeed: What's you're credentials?
Me: I fucking hate privileges straight white men and I'm pretty sure I'm black.

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 :)

The title of this video and its uppercase-ness lead me to believe that this is a video about how BuzzFeed murders kittens or something. 😄

Author Jeremy Hable ( ago)
All i can say is Ello i don't agree with your videos about Lesbians or gays i will never support it. its to be a man and a woman and you talking about dating tips with woman on woman men on men is a lie and i can't believe you are supporting there lies and to themselves but anyways that is all i have to say take care

BuzzFeed went downhill since mid 2015 :(

Author Melody O ( ago)
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

Sounds like a cult

Basically buzzfeed points out the wrong doing in the world while doing wrong to the employees of buzzfeed ? Ironic don't you think?

Author Mass Effect Andromeda ( ago)
I hope buzzfeed closes down just like gamestop is starting to. They both treat people very bad.

Finally someone being Honest about why they left Buzzfeed. Usually people sugercoat it so much that it looks like Buzzfeed has no flaws and the only reason they leave is because they want more independence.

Fuck Buzzfeed.

Author Marshae Henderson ( ago)
a lot of the fun people that I've seen are leaving buzzfeed. love you guys! we'll miss you!! ;-;

Author Levan Ivers ( ago)
It's amazing. They had a diversity team but every person who left is white. I bet it's because these are the ppl who were "promoted." I bet very few POCs probably were.. Either that or the pocs have to stay there because they dont get as many other oppprtunities. There's always some racial bullshit involved. Gotta keep the master race on top...

why is everyone leaving Buzzfeed?

Author Ingo Filmfreak ( ago)
why do you say "let go" - why don't you say "fired", at least that'd be honest.... if you're fired there is no need to sugarcoat it with soft wording.

Author AnnaElisavetta Vonnedozza ( ago)
This BUZZFEED vlog was a potentially great vlog about BUZZFEED, but I actually didn't watch the BUZZFEED related vlog called "y I left BUZZFEED," bc BUZZFEED was said so many fucking goddam times instead of a diff word for BUZZFEED, after she kept saying BUZZFEED right after saying BUZZFEED I wanted to vomit. A person can only say BUZZFEED so many times.

The fuck does "diversity team" mean?! To be fair, I shouldn't be surprised they have something like at Buzzfeed -_-. What you mentioned about how moral values don't sell is so sad, but true :/. Keep preaching!

That's corporate business for you.
Even non-profit organizations are like this sometimes.
It's sad, but it is def a reality, you really hit the nail on the head when you said "they don't put moral value first, they put money making first."
Yup, yep, yes.
I get it's a business but when companies claim they have values or a moral standard they adhere to and you are in the machine and know damn well they are full of complete poo, that's when things get rough. Good on you for moving forward.

I realized BUZZFEED was complete SHIT when they made a video for that fascist f**king TED CRUZ!

Bang-o! You DO love the work less -- I've been there in spades. Big corps like Buzzfeed, and even smaller co's, tend to take the air outta your passion tires -- and fast!
You are all at an age where "A-ha!" moments go off like a cop taking down a doughnut. It may sound hackneyed, but follow thy bliss kids. It's old sage advice
for a reason. You can always make money doing something or other, but you cannot buy more time back. It's gone like Trump's "hair." Some are cool working
for others forever while others are not so cool with it and want to start their own dealio. To quote a fav line from one of my top shelf film picks MIDNIGHT COWBOY ('69):
"Take it easy -- But take it."

BuzzFeeds content is nice I think, but working at it would be shit.
I never watched these kinds of video's ABOUT BuzzFeed but when you search ''why i left buzzfeed'' on YouTube you get 187k results
I know not ALL of the 187k results is accurate but still.

Author JennyVan ( ago)
Wait every corporate job is like this except most companies are not as creative or diverse as Buzzfeed.... sounds like complaining to me.

Buzzfeed never puts Moral Values First! Hahahaha! Big surprise!

Anyhow, I am a Trump supporter who is not Anti-Gay, Anti-Black. Ect. From outside your LGB World, I could see the Toxicity in Buzzfeed. This video is a great insight to me.
It seems to me that many such places have been infiltrated by toxic inhuman even nefarious people. This exactly is what drove many people to Trumps waiting Arms. I actually credit companies and organizations like Buzzfeed for Trumps victory and for the Inclusive movement within the Right wing.

Never before have I seen Right Wingers call other races and sexual orientations "Brothers".

We realized the need to protect and bring closer than push away and chastise. To unite and stand together than to spew pure hate as the Left is currently doing.

I would task you, to rebuild Buzzfeed, I love your ideals! You have the spark of home to you. And if you were to make your own "buzzfeed competitor" I am sure you would make it fair and wonderful and not force things on people such as firings and forced position changes like you are surfs in some dark ages kingdom or communist Chinese "caste" member told she can only be a shoe shiner instead of a content producer. I would encourage you to use your great power to do this, you'd make a truly friendly community wouldn't you? But I can't ask this of you. Money and power corrupt absolutely and your company would be targeted for control and corruption. Could you stand by your words? And Reject billions laid in your lap? 600 Billion? Or would you place People above greed?

Author coffeegirl18 ( ago)
They need to restructure their hierarchy systems and give people clearer answers. Apparently communication is a common issue. They should allow everyone to have their own channel so they don't stifle their creativity :(

Anyone find Breigha and Krissy's channel? I can't hear her probably (still missing some hearing from an ear infection).

Had to google the sloth video. It's adorable and kind of funny.

Author Mashi Washi ( ago)
