I have been working at Seattle Times full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The company values, work/life balance, and employees make working for The Seattle Times a true joy. They are competitive with payment if you're an external candidate and offer a better than average amount of sick and vacation time.

Cons

In an industry that is constantly changing to keep up with technology and social trends, The Seattle Times tends to be a little behind many of their competitors. This then puts stress on the staff to constantly try to "catch up" with the newest and latest...whatever it is the company is rolling out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just listen to your employees - take what they say to heart and know they want the company to succeed just as much as you do.

    Pros

    Great people, great passion, everyone loves the news and is passionate about the product

    Cons

    Print is dying and management doesn't have a clear plan what to do instead, and the union has a stranglehold on the company and will take it down.
