I have been working at The Washington Post full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The Post has a very collegial environment. They reward performance rather than longevity, and for a company facing significant industry changes, they continue to invest in growth areas.

Cons

The Post can sometimes straddle the line between making a big bet, but under-dedicating resources to it. It has a strong culture that favors people who have cut their teeth in sales - though this is changing with the increased investment in the tech group.

    I have been working at The Washington Post part-time

    Pros

    The people are hard-working, intelligent, and passionate—and often very kind, to boot. The benefits are quite good for freelancers and part-timers.

    Cons

    The only significant downside relates to media generally today—it does not receive as much financial support as an organization of this importance deserves. People are often stretched fairly thin for this reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Especially with Bezos in charge now, please keep the bottom line out of your mind!

    I have been working at The Washington Post full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours
    - Great brand name
    - Ability to move within the company
    - Exciting workplace

    Cons

    - Not much opportunity for growth
    - News industry is uncertain
    - Unionized workplace does more harm than good

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take advantage of your younger talent. They are the future of the company but you are losing them by not allowing them to grow.
