    I worked at The Washington Post full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for people who are committed and ambitious. A newsroom open to ideas and innovation. Our industry is going through tremendous change, but The Post at least is open to change, and now with the purchase by Jeff Bezos, I'm sure you'll see more change.

    Cons

    Quality of editors varies, some excellent, some not so much. Some editors not adventurous enough, or insightful enough to spot good ideas and implement them or not confident enough to let their reporters run with a good idea.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing quality journalism, and being open to new ideas.

    Pros

    Great, great people. Cannot say enough about the (regular worker) people!

    Cons

    Journalist side of the house is highly favored over supporting departments (HR, finance, IT, marketing, sales, etc). High-level executives are completely disconnected from those that do the work. There are literally no employee perks left -- no cafeteria, no coffee/tea/water, barely any health benefits, no holiday parties, no tuition reimbursement, no bonuses (for anyone but high-level executive), etc. Many people who have been in the same job for years (decades even). Utter lack of innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Need some charismatic leaders with vision (maybe Jeff Bezos is the guy!). Clean house of executives who do not actively move the company toward mobile and web-based content. Print is a sinking ship, start acting like it. Lip service does not turn companies around. Put your money where you mouth is.
