Pros

Institutional influence; caliber of work; whip-smart people; very family-like atmosphere at the section level; ability to learn from the best in the industry.

Cons

Everyone assumes this is the most important thing in your life -- save family crisis, you are expected to work whenever, wherever (vacation? ha!).

Advice to Management

Listen better to what employees want instead of cherry-picking talented staffers for roles they may not turn out to be comfortable/effective in.

    Pros

    Most people are at the top of their game. Good support for innovation outside of normal job. Can pay well and advance if you're willing to play politics.

    Cons

    High turnover because employees usually need to fight hard for any raise or promotion. Highly political management due to clash of old and new media. Rampant favoritism and nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Put some effort into retaining talent.
