AP is not the place it used to be.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsAP is globally known, so there is a lot of prestige and recognition on the outside. Industry-wide, the salaries are excellent unless you live in a major city such as New York. The benefits are excellent and to a certain extent make up for the salaries. You're probably best off living somewhere else.

ConsLong hours and overnights. Also, the instability of the news media and recent layoffs make it a less pleasant place to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement plays much of its strategy too close to the vest ... communications could be better, and burnout can be a big problem when other shops offer better salaries and a more consistent schedule.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
