I have been working at The Washington Post full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Collaborative, intelligent coworkers, meaningful work, clear strategies, potential for growth, great location, good perks, lots of training and development, etc.

Cons

If you come from a small org. you need to get used to a bigger environment.

Advice to Management

The reviews on Glassdoor are a lot more negative than the experiences I have had first-hand. It would be a shame to deter talent from joining the organization based on these negative reviews!

    I have been working at The Washington Post full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Post has a very collegial environment. Hard-work and performance are rewarded. The Washington Post is a great brand that is recognized internationally. It's nice to mention your employer and have people recognize it. Increased investment in technology is promising for the future.

    Cons

    It has a very strong legacy business, which is declining. The future mission is not clear. However, it is clear that The Washington Post is investing a lot of time and energy in the future of the company trying "crack the code" of the media industry/newspaper/technology dilemma and where it wants to place its self.

    Advice to Management

    Very much a classic business model hierarchy. Need to figure out the company's new mission. Share the mission with employees. Be transparent. Need to re-structure for the future and try some more modern workplace initiatives.

    I worked at The Washington Post full-time (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.
