Pros

Great brand. On site gym if you like to work out. Great on boarding process.

Cons

Work/life depends on department management. Some departments slow to change and adapt. Very pen and paper- slow to embrace new technologies to support business processes. Little comraderie within department. Little cross training within department and knowledge sharing. Most people only knew how to do their job and would be unable to backfill other colleagues in department. Just come to work, do your work and go home.

Advice to Management

Some people are better senior individual contributors than managers. Hold people accountable not just on deliverables, but how well they manage others. Turnover can be high some areas. Glad that Bezos took over. Perhaps he can infuse some new thinking into organization about future of newspaper publishing.

    I worked at The Washington Post full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits. Company has a great work-life balance, family friendly-understands when you have to deal with health or family issues.

    Cons

    Company is downsizing and in transition. Not very likely to get a raise or bonus unless you are a sales rep or upper management and some departments are short staffed.

    Good co-workers, hard workering people that are friendly.

    Cons

    Very racists & show favoritism toward certain employees who are not even fit for the postions they hold

    Advice to Management

    Look at some of your own workplace harrasment videos that you make all employees watch.
