Pros

It's a great station, good culture, hard working people. The newsroom folks work very hard and have a good time doing it.

Cons

Too many name changes, the brand changes too much.

Advice to Management

Stick with the brand you have now for longer than two years.

    Pros

    Great cafeteria and gym
    Pretty headquarters
    Awesome parking garage
    Starbucks coffee shop (which also sells beer and wine)
    Phenomenally low expectations

    Cons

    Digital executives (now that Saridakis has left) set new standards of incompetence almost daily
    Cronyism isn't just encouraged, it's mandated
    Terrible compensation combined with exorbitantly priced benefits
    Furloughs

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all of the ceremoniously appointed inexperienced buffons running Digital and start fresh with some genuine online leadership. Stop running Digital as defined by the low bar of print publishing guidance to keep the mothership whole. Secure a whole team of talent from GOOG, APPL, AMZN, et al, paid appropriately and with proper operating budgets, to right the Titanic.

    Pros

    Good money while I was there but not so much anymore. Job itself was enjoyable.

    Cons

    Hideous treatment of employees. Constant browbeating over ridiculously petty procedures. Management hopelessly mired in meeting after meeting accomplishing nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Hold management to uniform professional standards and stop playing favorites.
