    I have been working at New York Times part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A great environment. Lots of cool people. Not very stressful at all. Lots of opportunity for growth and to do other things.

    Cons

    Might be slow at times. There seems to be a lot of office politics that I didn't focus too much on. Not as much men in the administrative office side.

    Advice to Management

    It seemed TOO relaxed. For a company that's in a dying industry, there should be more of a sense of urgency. It's scary to be too relaxed.

    I worked at New York Times full-time

    Pros

    - Unmatched talent: cream of the crop here and lots of people to learn from
    - Strong tech culture: embraces new technology and is very supportive of the tech side of the business (hack weeks, tech committees)
    - Generous tuition reimbursement
    - Vacation and sick time is the best of any place I've been
    - Good work/life balance

    Cons

    - Strong talent sometimes translates into big egos: people can be less open to ideas and are adamant about having things their way
    - Politics between departments made it difficult to do the job
    - Strong female leadership exists in the company but cannot be seen at the executive level

    Pros

    smart people, everyone cares about the work they do, no shirkers. great cafeteria, beautiful workspace, nice perks, central location for work.

    Cons

    can be a pretty bureaucratic place to work in terms of getting things done, but what big company isn't?

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

    Pros

    Got 10 cents a copy for distributing the New York Times on my college campus, about $80 a week. Great money, effective organization.

    Cons

    Sometimes drop off from the Denver Post was inconsistent or late and I would have to be in class by the time I had to drop them off.

    Advice to Management

    None. Overall really great job, really great interview, really great money. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good part time job who doesn't mind waking up early.

    Advice to Management

    Try to include your employees social life when you're overworking them.

    I have been working at New York Times part-time

    Pros

    Stability, intelligent atmosphere, innovative culture. Prestige. Union benefits. Global influence.
    The newsroom atmosphere is supportive, inspiring, and always demanding the best.

    Cons

    Internal mobility can be terribly limited. The company, like many, seems to deal in a star system, where a few people's words are golden, and others' analyses can go unnoticed.
