I worked at New York Times

Pros

Great recognition and opportunity to work within the best.
Best web technology thinking
best cooperation among producers
Working with the best journalists
A high level of respect for the work completed

Cons

management, management. Web management is problematic. Lots of tension between the "print" and "web" world. Too much of a divide and anxiety.
Division of work is a problem. Web producers are expected to put in 50hours of work before they file overtime. It isn't stated but it is understood. They need more staff and better coverage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Restructuring is needed but further more, honest discussions.

    I worked at New York Times

    Pros

    The New York Times pays well compared to other media companies which is one of the reasons that I was attracted to the company to begin with

    Cons

    The New York Times is a highly political place to work at. People on the business side are constantly talking behind other peoples backs and engaging in childish games.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership of the New York Times needs to work on ensuring that all people regardless of their affinities and tribes can get hired and promoted on the business side of the business.

    I have been working at New York Times

    Pros

    Great product, brand name and reputation. Looks nice on the resume. Good mix of people - old timers, newspaper vets, new media folks.

    Cons

    The company has been struggling of late and has instituted far-reaching salary cuts (or furloughs) and layoffs. Job security and career advancement are not guaranteed at this point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open and forthcoming - employees should not be kept in the dark about upcoming changes. Be more flexible.
