    Pros

    A strong culture of growth. Values quality journalism. Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    It's a big company and can be overly bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline and improve the back office functions. Real estate, IT costs, etc. are too big a burden on operating units and are not responsive enough.
