Decent place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) McLean, VA

ProsHours at corporate aren't too bad and can be flexible when needed.
People were generally easy to work with and willing to contribute to get things done.
Facilities at McLean are very nice.

ConsNewspaper business is hurting, which impacts everyone, regardless of individual performance.
There are a few people that don't pull their weight and will be there forever.
Furloughs for everyone are the right decision, but still hurt when you are doing well.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to reward individual contributors and weed out some of those who may not be pulling their weight.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
