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

Pros

The interview process was seamless and moved quickly. The company culture is both dynamic and inclusive. The office in downtown DC is centrally located and was built with many tech features, which makes it easy to host meetings and events with colleagues and external stakeholders located in other parts of the country and around the globe.

Cons

None to share at this time.

    I have been working at The Washington Post full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There's so much to do around here! I've been working in HR Total Rewards since late 2015 and I'm loving the work diversity. I'm never bored and five o'clock always sneaks up on me. I've been able to shape my role and expand it into other areas of interest. I receive support from my peers and manager.

    Cons

    It was difficult to transition from a highly structured environment to a dynamic, free-form one. I had to learn to ask for support when I needed it and, when appropriate, to move on items without checking in with my manager. Also, The Post has a very long history; learning the culture is critical to success.

    I have been working at The Washington Post full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great, triple time on holidays. No time clock so we get to slip out a little early at times.

    Cons

    Every little incident is blown out of proportion. Even incidents that are proven to be based on a misunderstanding will have you under a microscope for years. Some managers seem to think it's not their job to manage but to reduce head count for spurious reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people right. We are all giving it all out every night.
