For the survivors, The Post is good.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsThe union has done a good job of ensuring good benefits for all at the Post. The benefits, including a pension plan, are the #1 reason to work here.
Since the newspaper business is changing so quickly, it's best to be interested in that. I'd make that the #2 reason to work here: love of journalism.
And, #3: since journalism/the media business is different every day, most jobs here get that variety, too. Nothing is constant.

ConsAgain, nothing is constant - or reliable.
We are always on deadline, and working late happens for almost everyone at some point.
We are a large company - Washington Post Media - within a larger corporation - The Washington Post company - and information doesn't always move fast enough within these walls.
Recently there were many cutbacks, which produced a drain on morale.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
