    Generally a positive experience, different groups and departments have vastly different ethos and your mileage may vary.

    Pros

    If you do well, and have a supportive team leader and manager, they are very quick to give you more responsibility. Once you are established as a solid team player, there are many opportunities for growth, educational reimbursements and slow but steady raises.

    Cons

    Some teams are decidedly better than others, ranging from a bunch of very competent folks that would do well almost anywhere, to other teams which seem to be what's left after years of the cream of the crop skimming off to other places. You are not allowed to actively trade, and moonlight coding for open source projects is if not discouraged, at least made quite tedious and difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little less time making internal videos and producing new internal "awards", and spend a little more time regularly chatting with every employee outside of the lines of reporting.

    Good first job that gave me a stepping stone to better things. Not long-term job material.

    Pros

    Great benefits, almost unlimited resources, will invest a lot in employees they value

    Cons

    Culture of fear, limited career growth in news, very very little direction for new/young employees who are learning the ropes (there's intense training, but it's training on company policies and style rather than how to succeed and become better at reporting/writing). The middle 50% of the company is a machine that falls often defers to the status quote rather than innovating and trying new things
