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.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Chronicle of Higher Education full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vacation, amazing co workers and great work environment.

    Cons

    Limited room for growth. Sometimes micromanaging that can occur and the job does tend to get repetitive

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the push to training every level from Trainee to senior management

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Chronicle of Higher Education full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, lots of intelligent co-workers, good office location, interesting work at times

    Cons

    There's no strategy behind decisions made. Management is clueless. Lack of empowerment or respect creates a competitive, political atmosphere for those lower level employees. There's also a lot of cutting corners, so don't always have the resources needed to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let fresh blood in, or try reading a business book or two. It would do the Chronicle good.
