    I worked at New York Times (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Brilliant people committed to doing the right thing.

    Cons

    Massively changing media landscape makes it harder and harder to do the journalism (thorough, thoughtful, project) for which Times is revered.

    Advice to Management

    Particularly for the masthead editors, filter around the desks more and talk shop. It means a lot. Every editor says they will (Bill, Jill, Dean) and they never do.

    I worked at New York Times full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At a company that believes in its employees, the position afforded room to explore creative topics in creative manners. Very fine co-workers and work environment.

    Cons

    The downside to the aforementioned "Pros" would be, to put it delicately, a lack of direction and guidance. But really, a good job.

    Advice to Management

    I would not deign to tell The New York Times how to do its business. I have faith in their management.

    I worked at New York Times full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smartest people I've ever worked with, experimental environment, incredible brand, fun colleagues. A strategic, communicative, down-to-earth CEO. A family that cares about journalism and the work environment.

    Cons

    So many smart people that everyone had opinions. This meant decision-making was about consensus-building, and thus slow. But I think management understood, and it was getting better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to empower front-line managers to make decisions, in order to be even bolder and move even faster.

    Pros

    Strong, independent tech organization within the company. We service amazing work and have a major hand in the delivery and innovating for our audience.

    Cons

    Sometimes things move slowly and sometimes things move super quickly. Sometimes things happen out of know where but sometimes we have plenty of time to plan...

    Pros

    Cool people makes for a friendly, collaborative work environment. Management is always trying to be on top of the business so funding for projects that make sense are always welcome

    Cons

    It has grown almost too large to manage. People have a lot on their plates with management pressing for better numbers, nothing a new yorker wouldn't be able to manage.
