    I worked at Wall Street Journal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being peripheral to an incredible newsroom of reporters and support from talented teams with rigorous journalistic standards

    Cons

    Verbal abuse and gaslighting, racist microaggressions, little investment in diversity or career development—they just want you to do their busywork, no one knows how to be a manager or cares about their reports. Most come from homogeneous, wealthy families, and this perspective hurts the content produced and its integrity. The treatment between white colleagues and non-white colleagues is like night and day. More concerned about their egos as writers than the team as a whole.

    This is specific to my team; I've heard other teams have it better.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with a proven track record as managers to be managers. Make sure that each role has a path for growth. Budget for appropriate promotions with compensation, rather than changing people's titles without a change in income. If there are reports of discrimination, abuse, bribery/solicitation, and mismanagement, please take it seriously.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Wall Street Journal (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I never was contacted by anyone in HR which was odd. I initially interviewed with someone on the team over the phone and they didn't contact me after the interview. A few months later, I was contacted by someone else on the team to do a first round interview (phone call) again . I went through the process of 2-3 more interviews (met with someone in upper level management, the team, and another exec). The second interview, they asked me to mock up a marketing plan for them. After the rounds of interviews, I was told the team would put me in contact with someone in HR but no one ever contacted me after I had reached out.
