I worked at USA Today full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Big brand, (used to be at least) widely respected for stability and service within ad industry. Today, strong competitive salaries (but wasn't always the case)

Cons

Stressed revenue from industry challenge means every couple of years, management will swoop in with a structural change - often blindly back to where they were a few years earlier. Long term, there isn't much future beyond the flash and sizzle of some short term gains on marketing side.

Advice to Management

Determine what "Usa Today" really is and stick with it, and stop changing / adding new pieces to keep up with the joneses.

    I worked at USA Today part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice people; good work environment. Editors easy to talk to and welcome to new ideas. Would work there again.

    Cons

    Got laid off when they decided to cut part-time workers. Had always gotten good reviews so really no basis to fire me. But they did it in person, rather than over the phone even though editor was long distance. I appreciated that.


  2. "Temporary Employee Experience"

    I worked at USA Today as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was a temporary employee at the McLean location and felt like I had a good experience. Based on my experience at other employers, USA Today treats their temporary employees very fairly in terms of pay.

    Cons

    I did not like the fact that you were forced to take an hour lunch; a half hour is more than enough for me so that felt like wasted time in my day.
