    I have been working at New York Times full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - very friendly team. Managers are usually understanding and friendly.
    - conducive work environment. Developers get support from other teams like Infra, services, product,etc so that the main focus is development.
    - I feel proud to be working for the times.
    - compensation and bonus is as per market standards.
    - Management is very understanding and cares for people
    -upper management is approachable.
    - good vision for the Times products overall.
    - latest technology stack and freedom to experiment/choose technologies! Hack days, maker weeks etc are norm.
    - developers are encouraged to enhance their skill set by company sponsored educational courses.

    Cons

    NY Times tech division should work on improving how the brand is viewed in the tech community. Sometimes it feels that good work of the times is not recognized.

    Advice to Management

    The managers should be encouraged to talk to their employees about the career advancement goal and how to get there. Also some clear communication around how compensation will be affected with the promotion will make it easier for goal oriented folks.

    Keep doing the good work. There are companies who advertise that they care about the people but they don’t. In case of Times, you do really care about the employees and is evident as an employee to me.

  3. "Ever evolving and I enjoy evolving with the company."

    I worked at New York Times full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A piece of history. The people are good people to learn from and nicest people I’ve work with. We work to meet the deadlines to the best of our capacity for every job.

    Cons

    Long and very late hours. Hard to take time off but somehow the work outweighs that at times. Keep in mind it can be tough for immediate family. The time away.

    Advice to Management

    They are good at what they do.

    I worked at New York Times as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The New York Times literally has reviews and recommendations for anyone who has never been to New York and sponsored a couple of hangouts for the interns.

    Allow you to actually work on real projects within the company and create things.

    Cons

    Finding Housing can be difficult and expensive, you will probably have to pay for your own housing out of pocket as well:

    Advice to Management

    Don't change.

    I have been working at New York Times full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    --The people: Everyone is welcoming, passionate, talented, and there aren't any prima donnas (that I know of). The design teams are friendly and get along with each other.

    --The mission: I've worked for several companies that were "mission driven", a term that is too often thrown around, but not really embodied. At the Times, there's a lot of company spirit, with constant reminders of why what we are doing is important, and how we want to be impacting our readers and audience. This was huge for me.

    --Inclusiveness: The work culture is incredibly inclusive and open-minded. The Women in Tech community is large, and there's a lot of pride in that (I believe the Times won the Anita Borg award last year for being a top company for women in tech). The teams are diverse, and many teams do a lot of team-bonding type of events (teas, picnics, trips to the Met).

    --The management: I feel like the management actually listens to the ideas and suggestions of those that work below them. They also seem to genuinely care about your growth

    --The work: Sometimes the design team feels kind of start-up-y, but it a good way. Theres a lot of work to do, and a lot of it is self-directed. You get a lot of say in what you feel is important to be working on (this also ties back into being mission driven).

    -The building: Look it up. It's amazing.

    Cons

    -Working in Times Square can be hectic when you're trying to get lunch.

    -The Times appears to be trying to shrink some of it's teams, so I know some people don't feel entirely "stable". I don't think this is a concern for design though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good communication.
