Repeated connections as a consultant

Consultant (Former Employee)

I worked at Seattle Times as a contractor for less than a year

ProsThe Seattle times still offers a lot of autonomy to each enterprise. The staff I have worked with seem smart, invigorated by their jobs and work environment, and suggest that the management style of the Times is to hire good people and get out of their way.

ConsThe newspaper business is re-inventing itself. Some of the current positions at any newspaper are likely to be transformed to new kinds of jobs. Some people who are doing excellent work may nevertheless lose their jobs, because the jobs itself is terminated, or completely changed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
