    I worked at The Washington Post (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Washington Post has made an amazing transition toward becoming a technology-driven news organization. The newsroom is unparalleled in it's coverage of politics and world events. The company is making great strides toward becoming a leader in newspaper technology.

    Cons

    As with many Washington media companies, the business part of the company is ok, but not great. New management in New York is brining media professionals into the mix, which is helping. Influx of Politico employees is not likely to help the company achieve a sustainable revenue model given that these same people enjoyed a brief run at Politico, but that company is now all but dead.

    Pros

    The team is amazing! Such great people to work with everyday, team spirit, and made some great friends through the Post.
    I have learned so much in the past 5 years thanks to the Post being so innovating and continuously creating new products.

    Cons

    Lack of post sales support has been an issue. As we have more services and products to offer, it has been a challenge having more people to support and answer these needs.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the hard work, effort and time people put into. Thank yous and shout outs go a long way.
