    The company's management is being unfair to workers and the union is not helping.

    I worked at Newsweek Daily Beast (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Young staff, very challenging workload with lots of opportunity and visibility if you are creating content and want to be published.

    Cons

    Small staff means many people are doing several jobs. In an attempt to cut costs they keep laying off people and not hiring new staff. The conscientious, good workers burn out quickly. Particularly for those producing the website and ipad—the hours are brutal—the website is updated 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so stingy on the staffing and offer training and opportunities to advance.
