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

Pros

Collaborative, intelligent coworkers, meaningful work, clear strategies, potential for growth, great location, good perks, lots of training and development, etc.

Cons

If you come from a small org. you need to get used to a bigger environment.

Advice to Management

The reviews on Glassdoor are a lot more negative than the experiences I have had first-hand. It would be a shame to deter talent from joining the organization based on these negative reviews!

    I have been working at The Washington Post full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great location, work is meaningful, challenging, interesting and valued. Opportunities for growth and learning. My management team is terrific.

    Cons

    Some areas are stuck in past - this is changing, just needs to be faster.

    Advice to Management

    Increase tele work and flex work schedules. Make it easy for work to be done form any location - we all need work cell phones and tablets. A good amount of dead weight has been cut. There needs to be salary increases for people who are left who are top performers. Continue to cut dead weight especially within the mgmt ranks.
