I have been working at The Washington Post full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Culture that naturally treats employees with respect and dignity; excitement about additional resources to compete more effectively in the future; very smart people throughout the organization; good work/life balance

Cons

Very difficult to move up in the organization; there should be a better balance between using data and common business sense to make important decisions; organizational structure does not lend itself for good collaboration and getting initiatives done quickly.

Advice to Management

Reevaluate organizational structure

    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.
