I have been working at USA Today full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people are great! Very easy to get along with, helpful and great teachers. Hours are not too crazy as long as you get your work done. Great place to focus on yourself since the work is not brutal like ad agencies. Plus they have a gym, a nice "campus," decent food, and other perks. It's a great, fresh brand to work with for a company being located in the DC area.

Cons

There's never any budget to do anything cool with USA TODAY's marketing. You really have to rely on stock photography or your own photography. The company's future is uncertain since it has made a couple of bold moves lately.

Advice to Management

Everything pertaining to the creative should be handled by the Creative Director, not by the other higher ups. The other higher ups should be more focused on the strategy and making sure the campaign is on the right direction.

    Pros

    Great facility and interesting work. There are still people there that value ethics in journalism.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics. Departments and employees seem to be pitted against each other or doing the same work and everyone seems to do things differently.

    Advice to Management

    learn to work together
