    I have been working at New York Times

    Pros

    some groups (e.g. digital) are great at encouraging developers to try new things in our spare time (e.g. prototypes of new technologies). It's not an "enterprise-y" culture, i.e. we're free to use open source tools like mongodb, memcache, etc.

    Cons

    Some groups (e.g. corporate IT) are stuck in 1985. It can be incredibly frustrating dealing with some "Application Specialist" whose primary job skill is restarting a Lotus Notes server.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep things digital-focused, but don't jump on any trendy bandwagons. You don't need twitter accounts.

    I worked at New York Times

    Pros

    Everyone in the newsroom was integral to the final product, and it was gratifying for me to know that i played a part every day in something that was truly important to the world.

    Cons

    The way information travels in the world is changing rapidly -- the times was too slow to adapt and not influential enough to alter the effects of changing times. It's a shame but I feel like I was part of a dying industry that had used up its life lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a fine job with a diverse group of idiosyncratic, independent people who operate under a great deal of pressure and stress. Not complaints.
