Fast-paced global newswire company on the cutting edge of best practices & technology.
Pros: great compensation structure & bonuses, an insider view of all world news, cutting-edge technology & best practices
Cons: long shifts (overnight was 10+ hours per night, four nights on & four nights off), but otherwise, i feel there were few cons.
This global newswire was an amazing place to work. As an Editor, I was coached & uplifted at every step of my career there, even during very high-stress moments during corporate earnings periods (PRN is a stock disclosure point, so quarterly earnings times were frantic). The overnight shift helped hone my skills to work independently, especially with very reduced staff resources (500+ people there during the day; three at night!). As for compensation, overtime & additional shift work were always available; the bonuses were generous; & the salary increases were exceptional. After having to leave this job due to a relocation elsewhere, I've remained in contact with my colleagues at PRN & everyone has proved to be top-notch professionals in every avenue they've chosen. I highly recommend PRN!
