Great Experience, Tough Job

Reporter (Former Employee)

ProsGreatest bootcamp in journalism, period. Learn how to be a great reporter, to be faster and more accurate than just about anyone else in the game. And learn in trial by fire.

ConsBootcamp never ends, and this can feel like a never-ending slog of thankless grunt work. Not a lot of room for growth, union is abysmally backward, salary is almost impossible to live off of in major cities.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire half of yourselves.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
