Executive Assistant to the Chairman and Publisher (Current Employee) – New York – December 1, 2017
This is a nice place to work if you're interested in current events and what's going on in the world! I really love finding out about things before the general public and every once in a while seeing a celebrity or politician in the elevator.
Management is nice. There's a little too much emphasis on cost-cutting, resulting in loss of benefits and some nice perks. Every year there's a new "buy out" being "offered" and if enough people don't volunteer then there are layoffs. Added to that we are now in the midst of moving to open-plan "bench seating"--it makes one wish for the grand old days of cubicles!
Other than that this is a great place to work with lovely colleagues a good work/life balance--and a fabulous cafeteria!

By far the best place I have worked at, great people and managers to help you with your tasks. You would never feel left out and always had your voice heard. The work environment was also great to gain knowledge in many areas of technology.

Business Systems Analyst (Finance) (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – October 20, 2017
I enjoyed my time at the New York Times. They were true professionals. I thought the staff were very in tuned to their employees and were willing to listen and work with you. This experience was the best work experiences I have ever had.
APAC Customer Service (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – October 6, 2017
Lots of room for advancing in positions. Not so much in pay. I was promoted four times while working at APAC and only received fifty cents in raises. And all of the job worth getting are locked in by people who have been there for ages, who seemingly have no want to progress themselves. It's gridlock.
That aside, if you don't mind customer service, you'll love this place! The co-workers are amazing, most of the time. I even met a few life long friends there. They regularly order lunch in, and even if they don't there's always some company catering in the cafe. The hours are semi-flexible "1st shift or late 1st shift." And there's always incentives for exceptional work. (Like gift cards and such.) Halloween contests, etc.
Good community, great lunch, lots of opportunities to get off the call floor.
Not much room to make any actual money in the long run.
Contributing Writer, Editor and Producer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 11, 2017
If I had to write a review of the New York Times as an employer, I probably would not choose to do it here — but the site must be served! So — well, it really is the best newspaper on the planet. Is the internal culture perfect? No, but they do a pretty great job considering the economic and political climate.
Indexer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 12, 2017
I really liked working here--I learned a lot from my managers who were both knowledgeable and approachable. Corporate culture varies from casual to blue collar depending on which department you end up working in.
Large multi-media company with many different positions and growth opportunities
Company is dealing with downturn that is affecting print media industry.
After training you are equipment with enough knowledge to do your job for the most part. Some things you do need to get management for just because it is a limit of what you can do. This makes something simple turn into a project when it is hard to get management to assist you.
