I worked at The Washington Post full-time

Pros

Pros: Decent Middle management, working for a World Class Brand and excellent sales support. Great Work/Life balance and good overall culture.

Cons

Cons: Lacking in the technology and Programmatic department, slow on the uptake and staying relevant/competitive in the marketplace. Salaries are not very competitive and opportunities for growth are non-existent. Lack of Brand Identity: too Washington DC focused and not enough of a national New site focus.

Advice to Management

Great job on the re-org, more focus needs to be on bringing up the top performers and getting rid of the dead weight. Need to Re-energize company values and company culture.

    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.
