    I worked at New York Times full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great product, polite people, women have done well and are treated with respect, cool work to do

    Cons

    very political, direct feedback sometimes not shared, shrinking revenue and unsure growth potential.. Very old school management style under some execs (vacation tracked by assistants, no working from home etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing but understand the implicatons of the fact that the business is shrinking.
