    I have been working at Denver Post full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have only been here for a short amount of time but in this time I have been presented with so many resources and positive energy, it's really been unlike anything I have ever heard of from an newspaper/media agency. They are invested in their employees and treat them as equals. They understand that if you are the smartest person in the room, there's a problem. If you are an experienced digital seller and want to work for a company that will help you maximize your potential, this is the place. Other pros: Pay structure, break room view, benefits/perks, amazing coworkers, couldn't be a better location for downtown Denver.

    Cons

    Honestly, none so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Denver Post full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people there are great. Well-educated and driven. Adaptable to the constant change of this business. The work assignments were great and allowed for creativity. The downtown Denver environment made for an all-around positive experience.

    Cons

    There exists a constant downsizing environment. Management is trying to do the best they can with the yearly, quarterly and monthly budget cuts. Does not make for an environment that fosters the long term. Sad to see for a once mighty institution. We have lost a great deal of stunning talent. Very sad.

    Working for justice in the community you live.
    Exciting, never boring work.
    Great people, full of passion.

    Horrible, horrible hedge fund owners.
    Upper management is spineless and completely uninformed.
    Decision making outside the newsroom is completely irrational, following no path for the future.

    I worked at Denver Post full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and pay, great office location. Great group of people to work with, extremely lively bunch that encourage an active, Colorado lifestyle. Work is tough, but you are able to learn a ton in a ever-evolving environment. Stayed as long as I did solely because a few members of the team were awesome. Great at promoting from within, room for growth is significant.

    Cons

    Upper management only listens to senior employees in regard to team structure, changes and suggestions. Watch your back - people have hidden agendas and WILL throw you under the bus. A ton of proprietary systems to learn very quickly, that don't work all that well technically speaking. A lot of politics go into every decision that is made on different accounts that slow the overall process significantly. Expected to stay late and come in early on a regular basis. Good luck maintaining if you have a family or life outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Create a solid onboarding program, don't only take the word of senior employees. Just because they've been there awhile doesn't mean they're always right.
