    Pros

    There's nothing like working at the Post. Small newsroom feel, where everyone knows each other. Great access to everything and everyone. Fun place to work. Dedicated co-workers.Great benefits.

    Cons

    New management is somewhat out of touch in terms of newsroom morale. Pay is pretty bad if you are on young and/or not a star reporter.

    Advice to Management

    Anonymous surveys each quarter. Equal pay for digital and print staffs. Foster community - don't let it die! Be in touch with the researchers/aides more often -- they keep the place running!

    Pros

    WashPost offers flexible schedules and great, achievable bonuses. It is easy to work part time at the Post and make enough money to support yourself.

    Cons

    There are always difficulties working for a large company or under a bad boss within a large company. Fortunately I only experienced working under a bad boss for about 3 months during my 1 3/4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. A lot of young employees had some great ideas during my time at WashPost but the company was slow to recognize them and put up roadblocks to implement them. Get rid of the old-timers who are a drain on the company.
