Pros

Flex time, 5 weeks paid vacation, 6-month sabbatical for every 7 years of service, many women in senior management

Cons

Big discrepancies in pay. The salaries were once so lavish that managers can't afford to leave; they'll never get paid as much anywhere else. Anyone hired before 2000 is likely making over $100,000 -- unheard of in journalism. Hired after that? Different story. The company will eventually go broke because it can't afford its senior management.
