Florida's best newspaper, keeping readers' interests first
Director of Corporate Giving (Current Employee), St. Petersburg, FLJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: working for one of the best news organizations in the us
Cons: challenge of being a media organization in a rapidly changing technological environment
Journalism produced at its best. A watchdog for the public, doing important and extraordinary public service, investigative journalism as well as thorough coverage of local communities. Tampa Bay Times has won 9 Pulitzer Prizes, the most recent in 2013. Management cares about producing the best products possible. Co-workers are dedicated to their jobs – more... and bring the highest level of integrity to their jobs. 24-hour news cycle can be demanding, but knowing that your work makes a difference to the community is the most rewarding part of the job. – less

Tampa Bay Times
Digital Solutions Manager (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FLOctober 8, 2013
Pros: people
Cons: technology, education/training
My work days were filled with opportunity. I learned a tremendous amount in my 11 years at the Tampa Bay Times. My co-workers were phenomenal personally and professionally. The hardest part of the job was having systems that support and connect to elevate the teams/staffers/clients to higher technological solutions for daily business.
The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was the ability to be a part of the over all mission of quality journalism and quality consultation. People and the product were the best part and the heart beat of the organization. – less

Fun and laid back environment
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Tampa, FLOctober 2, 2012
Pros: environment, flexibility
Cons: healthcare, raises
A day at the Times was making sure my manager was set for her day and week. That there weren't conflicts in her calendar. I was a liaison for IT, and handled a lot of requests for the building and office equipment.
I established good relationships with the local chambers.
Working for the Times was fun. It was a laid back environment yet, on top of the – more... game of advertising. – less
