Pros

It's the Times. Your calls will always get answered. The world takes the brand very seriously.

Cons

Try to branch out and you get iced out. Management sees you as what you were hired as, and good luck trying to move up. There is little hope for internal promotion, and no formal path forward. Ask for more money and you will be treated like a criminal. They like to give you higher-level work and not pay you for it or formally promote you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a look at the talent in your building. Your loyal employees are miserable. They want to learn new skills and advance but there's a cultural barrier that prevents it. Stop worrying about hiring 23-year-old white men right out of Harvard. You are hemorrhaging talent and it's at your own peril. Also, you need to be digital first, and the culture needs to reflect that. There's a caste system here that's stuck firmly in the past. There is a war for eyeballs and we are losing it. Digitize or die. That's more than a business plan - that's a mindset.
