    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Womens Wear Daily full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The new owner Jay Penske has a great vision for the company and really understands that this 100 year old publication needs to adapt to a changing media landscape. He has tried to hire and bring in new blood to change the old regime, but the old newspaper guys fight him behind his back. The new offices are beautiful and located right across from the NY Public Library near Bryant Park.

    Cons

    The newsroom is unorganized with only a loose set of reporter beats. Reporters continually duplicate story coverage because of a lack of communication within the newsroom. There is NO daily reporter meeting, only 1 editorial meeting that excludes many reporters. Most new hires leave within 1-2 yrs. There is little comprehension from upper management about today's current state of media. The top editors actively work to...

    I worked at Womens Wear Daily for more than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers and staff higher up are very, very educated, committed to good journalism and amazing to learn from. WWD really opens the doors to great opportunities to interview serious talent and attend great events.

    Cons

    Pay could be much higher, especially because working in editorial means working after normal hours a lot of the time.

      I have been working at Womens Wear Daily full-time

      Pros

      Its the third job I've had and its the best workplace I've experienced so far

      Cons

      Legacy publication that is still struggling to navigate digital, not accelerating to online as fast as it could

      Advice to Management

      Hire more web producers (focus on promoting the amount of content currently produced instead of hiring new reporters to produce more content that ends up buried and is not moving the needle) and grow the email newsletters
