Great place to work and meet people. Exciting to be near people that write about the news.
Company is not doing so well. A lot of people left. Salaries were lowered. We are locating to Doral.

Despite the concerns noted below, the Herald still employs a handful of amazing journalists who are dedicated to their craft. Get to know them and you might learn a thing or two.
Like most newspapers today, The Miami Herald has lost its edge. The newsroom has lost or laid off many great journalists only to replace them with inexperienced kids who couldn't find a public record if it was sitting on their desks. The newsroom is extremely top-heavy, meaning there are far more managers looking to cover their own butts and protect their own jobs than is necessary for the number of reporters and photographers in the field. The money spent on executive salaries would be better spent on building better reporters and creating better journalism.

Great people, made some lasting friendships there. Manager was very supportive of our team and training and tools were available as needed. It was a great learning experience for me although, truthfully, am glad I moved on and would not come back. Good work/life balance in my experience.
The newspaper industry has fallen on rough times and the company has gone through numerous rounds of layoffs/downsizing over the past 15 years (at least). Employees do not always feel valued. As a result, morale can be low, and salaries as well. Budgets for research, outside vendors, etc. have been slashed. It can be frustrating and demoralizing to work in an undtry where there seems little opportunity for growth.1

You will have free gym and a furlough every year!
Professionally is a mediocre place to work. This not a place for an ambitious designer who want to make great projects and a career. This is more a place for an old and tired designer that want have some vacation days and get paid a stander salary, that it. I was and Art Director for a publishing department called HCP Media and it was a nightmare! There are a bunch mediocre people, who know NOTHING about publications, designing who are going to censorship your work!( from editors to the general publisher who doesn't even hold certificate in art history and is not more than a salesman) The publisher will personally decide what image is going to be used and which one is not, she will going to change your layout, but the funny thing is, she is an ignorant who doesn’t even have a background in art, designing, photography or whatsoever! she is just a salesman that become a publisher because of someone. If you are very talented and creative person you only going to get trapped by the obstacle of the ignorance, runnnnnn!1

The Miami Herald is a legacy news organization with a resilient and talented staff. The staff is filled with wonderful people. Unlike previous generations at the Herald, collaboration is easy and elevates everyone's effort. Toxic rivalries do not exist. New reporters work easily with veterans and their passion for producing solid, local journalism is infectious. This company punches above its weight class. The newsroom's union-backed guild is negotiating a first contract.
McClatchy, the Herald's parent companym has withheld investing in its most important asset, its employees, and its brand, reputation and potential is slipping. Salaries have not kept pace with competitors, or the cost of living. The challenges of working in a pandemic are costs expected to be shouldered by employees. No surprise, the company is failing to attract high level talent in the last year. There are now more than a dozen openings. Hopefully the owners will see the collapse of confidence and disinvestment as a threat to its future profits and decide it's time to turn things around.1
