The right coworkers make it fun
Staff Editor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 13, 2017
I had the pleasure of working under two fantastic supervisors who were accommodating when personal situations arose that may have caused me to have to leave early or set up a regular day or two to work from home.
I learned a lot under my first supervisor and enjoyed working for her. In general, on both desks where I've worked, we knew when to buckle down, but we also knew how to have fun.
The hardest part of the job, undoubtedly, is writing "Timesean" headlines, a process that is now changing. The most enjoyable is the satisfaction of delivering an article to readers that is clear and as concise as possible.
The "boots on the ground" managers are as open as they can possibly be. Upper management, on the the other hand, is opaque. Sometimes you have to read between the lines about the direction in which the company is going.
