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

Pros

Great co-workers, great location, work is meaningful, challenging, interesting and valued. Opportunities for growth and learning. My management team is terrific.

Cons

Some areas are stuck in past - this is changing, just needs to be faster.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase tele work and flex work schedules. Make it easy for work to be done form any location - we all need work cell phones and tablets. A good amount of dead weight has been cut. There needs to be salary increases for people who are left who are top performers. Continue to cut dead weight especially within the mgmt ranks.

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

    Pros

    There was a talented and energetic staff throughout my entire tenure at the newspaper, which is popular with Metro riders.

    Cons

    The hours are challenging for someone looking to raise a family, as is the case with all jobs in the journalism field.

    Fabled news organization, now owned privately, disruptive times for print

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

    Pros

    There is a well-funded pension plan here.
    The history of the company is interesting. Watergate, Pentagon Papers, Unibomber papers, all the news about NSA and CIA, anything to do with elections.
    The projects can be very exciting and unusual.
    There is a good discount on newspaper subscriptions for employees.
    A strange new Guaranteed Savings contribution type of thing instead of a large 401(k) match.

    Cons

    The news industry has been hurt by the free news available on TV and the Internet.
    Many cuts have left morale in the dumps, but our new owner (Amazon's founder: Jeff Bezos) is inspiring some hope here. The new owner is NOT Amazon itself, but taken private from the Graham family's publicly traded company (now known as Graham Holdings Inc.).
    The 401(k) match (not counting the Guaranteed Savings contribution piece) is only against the first 1% of the employee's contribution.
