Exceptional benefits, low pay

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Business Wire

ProsThey respect employees' quality of life, there is a sense of pride within the company, they are probably the best in the newswire game.

ConsPay level is very low, especially considering the cost of living in cities where offices are located (major metro areas).

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider compensating employees (especially at the editorial level) better. The demands of this job are to be perfect, and that can be a lot to ask. Our talents would be rewarded better elsewhere and many of us are looking elsewhere for work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Training and feedback is non-existent and often contradictory

Newsroom Editor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Business Wire


Pros: Berkshire Hathaway is a prestigious and solid company to have… Cons: The benefits are not great - no dental or vision, instead you are given an FSA-type allotment by the company. The pay is not great… Advice to Senior Management: Designate certain employees who are strictly "trainers," or who are familiar with guidelines so as to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
