    I worked at Business Wire full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can be out the door once your shift ends - no overtime. They give you health insurance though they've been slowly chipping away at certain benefits (namely the allotments). You'll have a job while you look for others.

    Cons

    You will never be recognized for the work you do; there is no incentive to go above and beyond. The salary is pretty laughable and the PTO policies are horrible. Earnings blackout periods basically mean that there are twenty (!) weeks a year that you cannot request time off. If you are sick, expect to hear about it in your review. Don't expect a smile or hello from upper management, but you can look forward to the sudden firing of your friends and co-workers. You will have no internet access at your desk so be prepared to explain to clients on the phone that though you allegedly work for a tech company, you cannot visit any page they may want to check. Also... if you are an editor, all you're doing is data entry, but be prepared to act as a customer service rep. You will need to deal with high volumes of irate phone calls from the truly awful people that are Business Wire clients. They will be unhappy and they will take it out on you. If you man the photo desk, you will have no idea what you're doing. You will also deal with horrible people from other offices (looking at you, SF) and higher ups will treat you like an idiot when you are just trying to get through your shift without getting yelled at. Lifers won't do any work (or even know how to do it) and you will have to do everything. New "products" will be rolled out and no one will know what they are or how to prepare them. Certain supervisors will scapegoat you to hide their own incompetence. Everyday you will feel sick to your stomach at the thought of having to go to work. Keep your head down and send out resumes every spare minute you have
