There's no better newspaper to work at in these times.

Staff Editor (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsGreat paper. Not afraid to spend money to cover a story. Great journalists. Very creative people, for the most part. A generally convivial atmosphere and spirit of teamwork. Everyone generally takes great pride in tthe paper.

ConsA few bad apples, but that's true anywhere. An increasingly heavy emphasis on the digital side, which I realize is necessary to keep the paper economically viable but which also puts much more pressure on staff editors and, I'm sure, reporters, with no increase in salary and, in fact, a decrease these last few years in the number of employees. Often, not as much time for copy editors to work on a story as was once the case, partly because of so many extra tasks related to the Web site.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that the young digital staff you are hiring are more skilled in editing, to take some of the burden off editors trying to put out the traditional print editions.
