    Pros

    I enjoyed my career here as a news reporter.

    Communication from upper management could be a bit clearer.

    I worked at New York Post full-time

    Pros

    The benefits package is good, 401K matching and relatively generous with vacation days. When you're new everyone will kiss up to you to keep you around.

    Cons

    Management has real issues dealing with people, and raises or advancement for anyone not in management are pretty much non-existent, with the goal posts constantly being moved away. (If you are in management, you will be well-paid and likely have title changes fairly often.) Lots of unethical reporting.

    Advice to Management

    Stop berating employees for mistakes they may or may not have made in front of everyone at staff meetings. Retain employees by offering AT LEAST cost of living pay increases. Reward top performers. If you need room in the budget, getting rid of Decider and Page Six TV may be good places to start.

    I worked at New York Post full-time

    Pros

    Overall the people are nice and the pay is decent but there is not much more to be thankful for here.

    Cons

    In a world where there are new and innovative companies to work for, I am baffled why anyone in sales would choose to work here. The company is completely old school with people running the show with no understanding of how to build a digital organization. There are no impressive minds that work here and a complete lack of intelligent people to learn from. The executive leadership team has no concept or experience to draw from in order to save this organization from being a failing newspaper to a world class digital company.

    Look elsewhere to grow your career in sales. Work for fantastic bosses who will help you improve your skills. This is not the place for anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Give up and move on as you don't have the knowledge or experience to turn this ship around.

    I worked at New York Post full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small and approachable leadership team. New people in place are helping to change the culture and some processes for the better. Post Studios is full of smart, creative and very nice team members.

    Cons

    Top-down and cross-department communication needs work.

    Advice to Management

    Need to create a process where information, vision and goals are communicated more easily and frequently. Also, I've heard it can be a bit of a "boys club" at the top. That will be a turn-off to many.

  8. "Reporter"

    Pros

    Great benefits. Solid pay. Good coworkers.

    Cons

    No chance of career advancement. Bad editors.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your employees just as much as you punish them. There is no need to berate staff while offering no solutions to the mistakes they made.

    Pros

    Trying to move away from being a newspaper with new sites launching in 2015 and PageSix TV in 2016.
    Good pay, commission structure strong with performance.
    Funny mix of really old school newspaper people and new digital focused people.

    Cons

    still a newspaper sell at heart.
    market has a strong bias one way or the other that is tough to break for new business.
    account list breakdown is by agency minus any retail accounts under that agency.

    Advice to Management

    hold on to the new talent better and trim the fat from the old newspaper sellers. build better partnership ideas that can actually be sold and less pie in the sky.


  10. "Hard to change old ways and be innovative"

    I worked at New York Post (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The publication was still a newspaper at its core and was trying to target a national audience with its digital team. But, it is still having an identity crisis that falls back to old ways for an occasional hit.

    Cons

    Although there were some effort to break down the walls between the digital and paper's teams, it is still an uphill battle. Leadership was not diverse.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep and grow talent for reporting and the digital age as the company transition in a time where many publications are losing millions of dollars.
