    I have been working at New York Post full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's great to come from one of the thriving papers in the industry.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance for most reporters is not the great. A lot of late nights/ early mornings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote employees after they've proven themselves, and executed skill and experience. It will build company morale.

    Pros

    An established, if fading brand that New Yorkers love, so it's a great place to make an impact. Performance is all that matters; so work rules are practically nonexistent

    Cons

    Company is slow to adjust to internet world, and leadership is confusing. Benefits are ok, but salaries are low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be kinder to your employees and more open to new ideas

    I worked at New York Post full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The online group was great to work with. People were generally fun and excited for any work that came their way.

    Cons

    Business decisions were generally poor. There is barely an HR department. Upper management decides on compensation based on what they think, not what they know. No real perks other than free ice cream day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management.

    I worked at New York Post full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A great opportunity for college graduates. The company thrives on training young employees and grooming them to sell the New York Post products. They focus on promotions internally which is a unique feature in the sales industry. Additionally, this is the only company that encourages their employees to leave at 5:30pm, and allows for everyone to have a strong social life outside of work.

    Cons

    Since everyone is hired internally, there is no outside knowledge of digital sales. This has done a serious disservice to the company and has ultimately led to their failure in the digital space. The company culture is also heavily reliant on "loyalty" to the company and those who were loyal had little knowledge outside of the walls of News Corp. The sales strategies and company culture were extremely antiquated and those in charge were too stubborn to welcome a (modern) change for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not hire from within News Corp.

    I worked as a copy editor on the night news desk (freelance).

    I worked at New York Post as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The head of the copy desk (copy slot) was, without a doubt, among the smartest, most capable, unflappable, well informed, and insightful editors I've ever met--he also is the poet of Page 1, the man who writes those two- or three-word headlines that sometimes make news themselves. Editors from other sections seek his advice as well.
    My co-workers were bright, funny, well informed, dedicated to their craft, and determined to get the story right. A superb staff, all around.

    Cons

    Seismic shifts in the world of print news have decimated the newsroom, which has taken a toll on morale as well as the quality of the paper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not news that the NY Post loses money. So why not make it a GREAT paper that loses money?

    I worked at New York Post full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    An exciting, enterprising, professional place to work. I started there as a copy boy and worked my way up. I left it to be on my own as a freelance writer after scoring many Page One stories.

    Cons

    Working the Lobster Shift was not one of my favorite schedules.

    I worked at New York Post full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, good environment overall, and well organized sales training program. Some of the best post college training and experience I could imagine. Great program of promoting based on performance up to AE level. Great career opportunities after since most employers are pleased by the amount of sales training that was provided.

    Cons

    Once attaining AE level very difficult to move up, senior management doesn't necessarily listen to what you are interested in therefore may end up in a sales territory that is less than desirable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place people where their strengths are, not where you need bodies.

    I have been working at New York Post as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great history and a lot of people experienced in the newspaper business to learn from and grow with. Very passionate about their work. Everyone I have contact with is dedicated to their craft and always willing to share their knowledge with a smile. The location is in the middle of the city in Rockefeller Center, so subway access, entertainment and excitement are readily available.

    Cons

    Office is not the newest environment to work in. Not much effort is being put into improving the furniture or the equipment. If your surroundings matter, this is not the place for you.
