Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at The Washington Post full-time for less than a year

Pros

My manager encourages me to create and pursue projects in areas that interest me. I feel like my manager wants me to succeed and helps me strengthen my weak spots without being condescending. I... like going to all of the company events and the free swag!

Cons

The benefits are not "omg amazing" but they are pretty good - and seem to get a bit better every year.

Advice to Management

Keep listening to employee feedback.

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.
