    I have been working at Business Wire full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Vacation and healthcare are strong. Work with good people. Company is stable and a part of Berkshire Hathaway......a home for life.

    Cons

    Pay is a challenge- salaries need to be reviewed. In many positions advancement is difficult due to tenure in front of you.

    Advice to Management

    New management - positive changes are happening.
