    Collegial, mentoring, family-friendly non-profit

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsColleagues engage in collaborative work; all the staff is passionate about the issues/topics; senior leadership has clear strategic visions which they communicate well.

    ConsThe organization is fairly flat, which can be a plus, but also hinders some upward movement of the younger staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    great program

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsGreat media outlets and extremely kind and helpful program leaders.

    ConsYou may have to move somewhere else for the summer. That's it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis program offers people an invaluable experience writing for top-notch newspapers and media outlets. I would recommend it to anyone, if you can get it. The one downside is that you often don't know where you will be placed until late in the application process. For those with families or significant others, that can be difficult. Also, the stipend is very generous for every city, with th exception of maybe New York. It might be difficult to live on the stipend in that city.

    Behind the public smoke screen

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYour medical /dental coverage is paid for with a minimal co-pay. The pay is good for union work with overtime benefits as well on-call.

    Conspoor management style, unfair labor practices, promotions and new hires are based more on who you know rather than what you can actually produce.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImmediately flush out outdated management/management styles based on managing people by fear instead of working with employees and providing them with the training and support needed to create a positive pro-active environment and produce on the job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
