    I worked at New York Times full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company benefits, compensation, happy hour at work, employee perks during work

    Cons

    Management plays favorites and doesn't know how to speak to their employees. Employees live to work at home 2 days a week because they can't stand being with each other in office. The way the employees talk about managementis horrible and if you need REAL HR to speak to, they don't have one. Dependenton the workgroup you're in it could be great. Or you could get the group that's two faced and doesn't like each other the...

    I have been working at New York Times full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - The mission. - Tech-wise, can sometimes feel start-up like. New projects are cloud-first (GCP) and most teams have moved to agile. Room for new ways of doing work and rethinking old approaches. - Decently large tech org with a depth of experience. - Lots of opportunity for growth and strong focus on learning. - Strong architecture review board. - Push for more regularization in languages, systems, and production...

    Cons

    - Feels enterprise-y in a lot of ways: culture-wise, a lot of the tech staff don't live in the City and many teams are incredibly siloed from each other; project-wise, things can move slowly and old projects live forever. - There's a lack of cohesiveness in the org: while engineering has started to move to a product model, Product & PM are still catching up; some teams lack development discipline; communication between...

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to konmari internal systems. - Shore up developer processes for consistency and help remove silos between tech teams. - Improve HR hiring speed and agility. - Focus on building inclusive work environment and recruiting under-represented talent. Push for more transparency in this area. - Hire with an eye for soft skills (e.g. communication, empathy, self-reflection) as well as hard skills. - Drive additional...

    I worked at New York Times full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the best content ever produced comes from that office. Great people, excellent mission, tons of events and speakers. Historic.

    Cons

    Pay. Really depends on what you want out of a career, but there's more money to make elsewhere. Up to you what's important. If it's career fulfillment and being apart of arguably the best newspaper ever created then this is the palace for you. If you want to make money, go build your resume for 5 years and come to the Times.

    Advice to Management

    I loved my manager, others have their own takes. I have nothing but great things to say about NYT, I just needed more money.

    Pros

    Great name on your CV reasonable salary, bonus and good work benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy and politics, not the fair and diverse workplace that comes with the name. Lack of collaboration/communication across offices and with the U.S. office. Very limited career progression, training and limited work flexibility.

    I worked at New York Times full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The NY Times is a strong company and very reconizable

    Cons

    Bad management, poor communication and limited growth

    Advice to Management

    Having worked at 2 other companies thus far in my career, I feel strongly that this was just a bad fit. My manager there was not a good manager. During every one on one, I told him that I wanted to be challenged and he would tell me that I need to be more excited about the work I'm doing on a day to day, in other words, he was saying I need to be more complacent. Then, the first time I asked for a pay raise, they totally...
