    I worked at The Washington Post full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great, great people. Cannot say enough about the (regular worker) people!

    Cons

    Journalist side of the house is highly favored over supporting departments (HR, finance, IT, marketing, sales, etc). High-level executives are completely disconnected from those that do the work. There are literally no employee perks left -- no cafeteria, no coffee/tea/water, barely any health benefits, no holiday parties, no tuition reimbursement, no bonuses (for anyone but high-level executive), etc. Many people who have been in the same job for years (decades even). Utter lack of innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need some charismatic leaders with vision (maybe Jeff Bezos is the guy!). Clean house of executives who do not actively move the company toward mobile and web-based content. Print is a sinking ship, start acting like it. Lip service does not turn companies around. Put your money where you mouth is.
