I have been working at Village Voice full-time
Iconic brand. Great environment - laid back even though people work extremely hard. The majority of the staff is passionate about VV and it shows in their work. The editorial and business staff are all a wonderful group of people. The editor in chief is a fantastic storyteller and has an exciting vision for the brand. There is a new head of business and she has vast experience in newspapers and sales. Seems to be a great leader. It's an exciting time to see where & how the brand will continue to grow!
Good perks - even the small ones such as unlimited snacks, coffee & beverages are appreciated by all of us.

Advice to Management
Change is nerve wracking - inclusion is important. Keep the lines of communication open! Be fair in all negotiations.
Jim Larkin is NOT the current CEO as listed below. Regarding a thumbs up or thumbs down for current CEO? I'd say overall, thumbs up!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Village Voice (New York, NY).
just talked to editor. good person with good instincts but totally informal. no warning about terrible management and how bad it still is. couldn't have known how much worse it would get.
