Lots of beautiful people. In every sense of the word. The management is fair and balanced. Love the culture. People are friendly. Especially if you're a designer. You get treated really well. Awesome for gay parents. Women are treated well. And they have interesting international policies.
Long hours, variable bonus, weird hiring & tiring & firing policies. Double speak, excision from meetings, and lots of hard work.
Advice to Management

We set up an interview, which lasted about 30 minutes. I was asked about my background, what kind of news I'm interested in and how I use social media. I was then welcomed to ask any questions I had, which I did. The editor emailed me back a few days later saying they liked my background but wanted someone with more breaking news experience.
