    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Pros

    It is an independent station so the news was hyper-local which is great at a time when news stations must compete with the internet for eyeballs. The weather is lovely and most of the employees are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    I found it difficult to get promoted, the hours were absolutely grueling and the moral pretty low, though that captures the sentiment of the entire community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greater compensation and room for upward mobility. It seems like promotions were harder for African-American employees.
