    Pros

    Bay Area News Group is a fun and flexible place to work! I truly enjoy the people I work with and don't dread coming into work but look forward to it.

    Cons

    The Bay Area News Group is transforming from a print media company to a digital media company. There are some growing pains, but it's exciting to see the bigger picture of where the company is headed.

    Pros

    Great company. Is growing and they treat their employee with lot of respect. The work life balance is amazing.Overall I would recommend BANG. Its a fun place to work.

    Cons

    BANG has some cons. Its a newspaper company and newspaper is going down, so that would be the greatest con. However they are working to fix that.

    Thank you for your candid feedback and review. We've seen so many changes since the glory days of the printed paper and have said goodbye to many production facilities as we've agilely navigated the changing industry landscape. We have a rich history in the newspaper industry but we've come a long way since! Did you know we were the first paper to have a web presence in the mid 90's? Our entire organization has shifted to a model with high growth in online journalism and advertising.
