People care about what they make but retention and development is poor.
Event Producer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 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.
Editorial Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 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.
Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 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.
