    Blue chip brand looks great on resume.

    Dec 20, 2016 - News Room Related Senior Management in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    It's a blue chip name and your colleagues are some of the best in the business. Until recently the compensation has been good considering the industry. Bloomberg and NYT probably better for most positions pay wise but good for journalism in general.

    Cons

    Many of the downsides are industry wide. It's a situation of constant change and trying to "re" everything all the time. Newsroom senior managers all have excellent journalism backgrounds but that doesn't always translate into effective leadership and management. The pressures are enormous on everyone but there are critical gaps between the ideas and the execution and newsroom management aren't really experienced in technology or how modern companies operate. The brain drain in the last few years has been staggering and some pretty questionable people have risen to positions well beyond their experience or capabilities. How people are getting promoted is a bit of a mystery but not unlike many places. The upside is it's a collegial atmosphere and looks great on a resume. I'm not sure it's really a place to make a long term career.

    Zero diversity, extremely toxic environment with no management accountability

    Jan 12, 2021 -  in London, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The pay was above industry standard The office was nice

    Cons

    The UK newsroom is very white and very male. POCs are a rare sight and are constantly overlooked and not taken seriously. Editorial standards is a hit and miss and solely depend on the manager/editor you work under. There’s no accountability for a bad manager/editor whatsoever.
