Print Company Struggling for Its Footing on the Internet

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsFreedom of information, the First Amendment, speaking truth to power -- the mission of the Associated Press reads like the highlights of the founding ideals of America. There are few other companies whose job is to defend the public from the excesses of the powerful, and being part of that work is a real honor.

ConsThe company is run by journalists, who can do journalism really well -- but business, technology, etc, not so much. If the management of AP were to hire some real professionals to run its non-journalism parts, it would be unstoppable.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you came to your position after leaving part of the newsroom, you should take early retirement. AP should be managed by people who understand business, not tired hack journalists who moved out of the newsroom because there was nowhere else to go.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
