    Pros

    A great company with great benefits. Many talented colleagues to work with. Adhere to the highest standards. Great editors who will add value to your news stories

    Too stressful. It is a pressure cooker and the work load just kept piling. It is an environment where you can get burned out easily. That is why I left. I couldn't take it anymore

    Advice to Management

    Need to spend more time to understand your employees and to create a more tolerable workplace. You cannot ask an employee to do 3 people's work.
