Featured Review

Current Contractor - Business Development Manager

I have been working at Financial Times

Pros

team culture ,Pay , work life balance good social life

Cons

not enough diversity management don't interact with staff

Current Employee - Editorial

I have been working at Wall Street Journal full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Editors put in the time to make sure work is of the highest quality - Authoritative take on the news - Strives to be the best

Cons

- Hyper focused on feeding U.S. readers. Despite decently-sized bureaus in London and elsewhere , it's hard to push through international news - Too many editors having a say on a story makes them... stilted

Advice to Management

Give writers more freedom to write with a voice. Don't over-cook stories or they lose their energy. Allow more foreign stories to help grow international readership.
