Polygon is an American video game website that publishes blogs, reviews, guides, videos, and news. At its October 2012 launch as Vox Media's third property, Polygon sought to distinguish itself from competitors by focusing on the stories of the people behind the games instead of the games themselves.
A former employee says of the parent company, "All of leadership and high level executives [at Vox Media] are foolish and far from knowledgeable. They basically have “kids” running the show and contributing to the consistent decline of Vox Media. Not only do these individuals make poor decisions with no evident support as to why, but they can’t even properly communicate the company’s goals and efforts to employees in a professional or clear way. Constant restructure leading to massive lay-offs of well equipped people. Extremely poor team cohesion. There is a horrible dark cloud of negativity surrounding the entire office - no one is happy, no one is encouraged, no one wants to be there. It truly is so sad what Vox Media has come to. Absolutely no room for advancement. Favoritism and politics are what determine your fate at Vox Media. Sadly the executives play dirty and will do whatever they can do win- at the expense of individuals who have been loyal and sacrificed a lot for the company. Lies, deceit, you name it, they do it. Do yourself a favor and avoid working here. It isn’t at all what it used to be, there are little to no benefits for a career here."
