I worked at Seattle Times full-time

Pros

Great newspaper and getting better despite industry downturn. Interested in reporters' ideas, a lot of talented editors, kind and smart and funny coworkers.

Cons

More of the Seattle chill than some workplaces, and not all the editors are brilliant -- but most are, and most are kind. The biggest negative, of course, is what's happening to the newspaper industry.

Advice to Management

Weed out the people who aren't excellent. You're good enough to attract the best and can't afford to hold onto the rest.
