Pros

Flex time, 5 weeks paid vacation, 6-month sabbatical for every 7 years of service, many women in senior management

Cons

Big discrepancies in pay. The salaries were once so lavish that managers can't afford to leave; they'll never get paid as much anywhere else. Anyone hired before 2000 is likely making over $100,000 -- unheard of in journalism. Hired after that? Different story. The company will eventually go broke because it can't afford its senior management.

    I worked at Chronicle of Higher Education full-time

    Pros

    Surrounded by smart people. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Digital impact on print revenue means shrinking profits. Staff overworked as company tries to do more with less. No general agreement or staff buy-in on vision or future of company. Internal political BS takes up time and toll on staff.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through. More transparency. Too much dead weight at top of food chain.
