Great brand, but that was about it.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsGreat brand. On site gym if you like to work out. Great on boarding process.

ConsWork/life depends on department management. Some departments slow to change and adapt. Very pen and paper- slow to embrace new technologies to support business processes. Little comraderie within department. Little cross training within department and knowledge sharing. Most people only knew how to do their job and would be unable to backfill other colleagues in department. Just come to work, do your work and go home.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome people are better senior individual contributors than managers. Hold people accountable not just on deliverables, but how well they manage others. Turnover can be high some areas. Glad that Bezos took over. Perhaps he can infuse some new thinking into organization about future of newspaper publishing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
