Toxic department betrays the mission. Would be a great company if they could lose the Upper Managerment
Director Advertising Operations (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 4, 2019
Pro: Creative people really dedicated to the mission, Amazing people to work with. Everyone is passionate about what they do.
The traditional managing structure makes communicating with management difficult. It often feels as though ideas are created without any input from those who would create the eventual product.

Con: Everyone here is over worked, overall management of company is dysfunctional and inefficient which leads to disgruntled and embittered employees. Internal processes are slow and ineffective, lost paperwork, mistakes, unpaid bills, services turn off, id cards don't work, to get a decision on any request takes a heap of meetings and huddlefests for managers/directors/upper management to craft well thought out "cya" types of responses. They act like they want input from staff but they really don't, just come in, do your job and don't question anything and maybe they won't find an issue with you, but it's unlikely if you have a working brain.
Pros
Speak with Anyone, Social

Work with media talent in a fast pace environment

A not for profit media organization that attracts talent. Excellent opportunity to bring your experience to the table and expect to do so with less resources.

A toxic work environment
Editorial Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 8, 2018
NYPR has cultivated a public image of being brainy, quirky, progressive and "hip" but the reality of the daily work environment is much more dispiriting. The middle management is territorial, at times, bullying, and yet frequently fearful of their listeners. If you're not a star or "golden child" you're not going to advance far here. Lower-level producers do much of the heavy research and leg-work for hosts but do so at paltry wages and for little acknowledgement. It's no surprise that the company drew headlines last year for its toxic work environment. Avoid.
Pros
Airy offices in a cool neighborhood
Cons
The work environment

Worst place I ever worked
Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 30, 2018
Absolutely toxic workplace, starting with Senior Management, and especially emanating from the HR and Finance departments. Work here only if all other options are exhausted, and even then try bartending to make ends meet before going to this career killer and soul destroyer.
Pros
Edit staff are top-notch and very down to earth
Cons
Culture:rotten from top to mid-level

People care about what they make but retention and development is poor.
Event Producer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 12, 2018
Managers are not given the tools or resources to manage staff. Staffers are expected to exceed expectations without financial compensation or credit. Financial model for hours worked and salary paid is not balanced.
