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

Pros

Senior management is open to new ideas and willing to allow employees to experiment and try new ideas. The prestige and history of the Post is hard to replace.

Cons

I wish there was more diversity in upper management and those identified as "star" reporters, but the organization is aware of those issues and is attempting to address is.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't fall victim to the star system.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Work/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 ManagementAdvice

    Some 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.
