    I worked at Business Wire full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I agree with the reviews which state that Business Wire is a good place for recent college grads to get their feet wet in corporate America. You'll definitely gain some good experience if you're willing to work nights and/or weekends, and handle a moderate to heavy amount of phone calls. Keep in mind that you will not be an "editor" in the classic sense of the word. You will perform customer service that involves light proof-reading, but you won't even be a "proof-reader" because that takes special training and certification. You'll be working alongside English and Communications majors that couldn't get jobs anywhere else. If you go to work in the newsroom you should take advantage of your schedule to further your education and expand you job skills.

    Cons

    The turnover is high in the sales departments. It seems like the sales people are always quitting or getting fired, and that's not good for company morale or maintaining the client base. Evolving technology and reporting methods are making this company a dinosaur. Business Wire likes to boast that it gives its clients more coverage for the extra money they must pay to use its services. But that extra coverage seems to amount to lots of websites and smaller news portals that aren't relevant and don't otherwise expand news distribution. The company introduces new types of news tracking services, but charges for them instead of bundling them into the already over-priced circuits it sells.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I worked in the newsroom the CEO was in the habit of sending out demeaning or otherwise ridiculous emails. One of the worst was the one she sent out celebrating the death of Osama bin Laden, which she concluded with a quote from Ghandi. Say what you will about OBL, but I don't think death should ever be celebrated, and I could not think of a more inappropriate figure to quote after such an incident. The newsroom staff mock her mercilessly. This example epitomizes how detached from reality the management is at Business Wire.
