Smart people making mediocre products.

Software Engineer (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsThe New York times is a great workplace. They have an awesome product - the news. The mission is clear, and has a worldwide message.

ConsAs a software engineer, the Digital / website departments continue to get shafted to the whims of the Newsroom. Many promising ideas to innovate in the field of online news production are continually poo-poohed by the newsroom, crippling their attempts to move into a continuing leadership role in the field.

Advice to Senior ManagementMove the three or four project directors and tech leads out of the critical path of actually building great software. Their loyalist attitude over the course of my employment caused significant brain drain in the middle and upper developer positions. Create barriers between the newsroom and the development teams, allowing actual innovation to take place - the people have been in place, until they left because of seemingly endemic middle management hassles.
