    Nice people but don't hold your breathe for growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsReally nice people, location, architecture of plaza

    ConsIf you are not CS you will never fully fit in nor will you be considered for growth. There is an an us (CS) vs them (non-CS) attitude that persists. Cuts corners when it comes to quality infrastructure and talent within organization. Mass technology and talent exodus occurring. Also it is very difficult to get a job with them on your resume due to bias and misconceptions about the faith.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay people more and value the contributions non-CS employees bring.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Calm atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's unusual in journalism to work for an organization where swearing and smoking and yelling at correspondents and editors is just not a part of the culture. The staff is committed to solid, thoughtful, non sensational journalism. Great place to get a running start if you're an intern.

    ConsSome passive aggressive tendencies among editors and higher ups. You have to always read between the lines. Small staff and small budget means a lot of hours and few hands on deck. Not a lot of mentorship for young staff.

    You don't have to smoke to work at Marlboro, but it helps

    Web Designer (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsLots of sick days, no questions asked
    comfortable salary, not a huge amount of work

    Consthe newspaper dictates everything, all other departments are brushed aside
    it's the spoilt brat of the church, not really capable of standing on its' own
    antiquated management doesn't understand the concept of new media
