I have been working at New York Times full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The New York Times is forward-thinking, innovative, not afraid to take calculated risks. The opportunity to work with high-caliber professionals. The company's dedication to high-quality journalism and the opportunity to be a part of an industry-wide transformation.

Cons

The lack of upward mobility. The matrixed org structure and committee-driven decision making that impedes speed-to-market. The lack of vision/strategic direction in the most senior levels leaves important decisions vulnerable to politics at lower levels. The lack of a focus on enhancing company culture and morale.

Advice to Management

Rethink the org structure in order to reduce overlap and improve clarity on roles and responsibilities. Recruit senior executives who are visionaries so less debate about strategy happens "on the ground."

    I worked at New York Times full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, good work life balance, interesting work.

    Cons

    Too much process & red tape. Lacking innovation and fast movers. Stale brand - perhaps with the recent acquisition - things will improve. Management is lazy.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the red tape/process.
