Pros

Great co-workers, a mission I can get behind, some opportunity for growth. Good team spirit within departments, but not inter-departmentally.

Cons

Too much old-school thinking. To much division among departments. No clear leadership. Too much pain trying to meet the bottom line. Current low morale among both employees and management.

Advice to Management

Too mired in bureaucracy. Too afraid to let go of non-producing employees. Too slow to make changes. To afraid to move, period. Say they want to be players, don't back it up with action.

    Pros

    Great place to work. It does the right things for the right reasons. Tiny Desk concerts in your workplace.

    Cons

    It's the news business. Things can always go bad. But overall this is a great place to work.
