    borderline abusive work environment, terrible scheduling, no flexibility, and low pay. except for a handful of people, most employees seem to genuinely hate their job and vocalize it frequently.

    Pros

    Very flexible with schedule so long as you can fulfill the 3 day requirement. You gain a lot of experience in the field

    I worked at New York Post full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Will look good on your resume Convos about current events can be hilarious and fun nice gym

    Cons

    This place is run by racists, bigots, and liars. Racist jokes, sexist jokes, and overall targeting and awkward questions towards people of color. Management will keep you where you are with no advancement. People are laid off constantly so that's why it looks like this company is doing well. New people with low salaries are hired with no chance of advancement. So think again if you believe you'll work your way up... the ladder. HR is also corrupt, if you complain about anything, they will lie to get rid of you. They'd rather pay to shut you up than address poor management.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at New York Post full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked with some great people and talented editors and designers. HR, by and large, seems to be filled with some lovely humans who only yield so much power as well. The tour of the plant is also a highlight!

    Cons

    Incompetent management and antiquated ideals. Minimal diversity and a fairly sexist undertone. I think its a pretty toxic or abusive work environment and I feel healthier after not working there anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps ire people you trust so that you can watch them grow and avoid hiring women you can hold back so you can feel in control.

    I worked at New York Post full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great colleagues, a great place to meet different types of creatives - Good benefits, decent pay

    Cons

    - No room to learn beyond the tasks you are given - Very little room for creativity or growth as the top editors will often override all work you have done in order to get their “thumbprint” on it. - Editors with sexual harassment cases (past and present) they will still keep them and pay them top dollar - Managers often will pretend like they have more to offer you as a way to try and keep you from jumping ship -... Some top managing editors often have a delusional sense of power. Do not stay longer than a year, RUN. - Many editors are extremely lazy, have everyone else do the work for them. They are due for a solid round of layoffs as some employees are making $250,000-500,000 to sit in an office and put a check mark on pages - There is a dark underbelly of this company, almost anyone you speak to has something to say about the management - Print is down and making no money but digital is doing well
