Atlantic Media Values:
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two "pillar gifts" in you, and everyone else. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions
Force of Ideas: At the center of Atlantic Media work are the ideas within our writing. We believe that ideas to the good and not have consequence. Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, and giving voice to the latter.
Spirit of Generosity: Atlantic Media seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct. Atlantic Media writing should be cut from the same cloth critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.
