    I worked at Los Angeles Times full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -You're working with a historic brand, so you have a sense of pride when you go in each morning.
    -The work environment is very friendly. Everyone is warm and nurturing. Always there to lend a helping hand.
    -Very good work-life balance. There's a company gym. No long hours.
    - Good communication and synergy between the departments. Good team-building.

    Cons

    - There was high turnover due to the bankruptcy. Lots of layoffs and no job security.
    - Constant change of upper mgmt led to office politics playing a big role in who gets promoted, let go, etc.
    - Company was a bit slow to adapt to evolving technology.
    - Company goals and initiatives were too short-sighted at times. Went for immediate results and not the big picture.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Los Angeles Times.

    Interview Details

    I participated on an interview inside a university. Very nice recruiter, but don't know if it was a waste of time for both of us. She didn't seem to actually have interest for my profile, so maybe we just both wasted our times.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't really hard questions. It was more of a "let's meet you" kind of interview.   Answer Question
