    I worked at The San Francisco Chronicle full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance is great
    Coworkers are amazing (some)
    Pension is a rarity (though I dont think they offer this now)

    Cons

    So many middle managers that don't know what they are doing.
    People have the "not it" mentality. If it's not their job, they don't do it.
    People seem to work just to get by but aside from probably the editorial staff, there's no personal satisfaction from working there, no sense of ownership or full community.

    Advice to Management

    stop hiring middle managers that don't know anything. appreciate the people who the REAL work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was quick, called me in the middle of the week for an interview Friday. I never received a call back from them. The job seemed interesting, but also sounded small scale.
