Company Culture

A culture of helping others, learning from eachother and growing to the next level.

Support from management

Very easy to go straight to your higher up and ask for assistance or to figure out a plan of action or solution together with them.

Teamwork

Strong team who are willing to help eachother and take control when necessary to prevent a negative situation from happening.

Internal Communication

Regular one on one meetings with your boss/manager to talk about the weeks goals, hurdles and achievements and getting feedback on how we can improve our performance in a civil way.

Gender Equality

Most of the team are women and there is a lot of equality here and growth to be had by both genders.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older colleagues are respected here and have the knowledge and expertise that our team uses to grow and learn a long the way.

Career Development

You can take many different paths in this company, depending on what intrigues you or catches your eye. Everyone is easy to talk to and it's comfortable asking people their roles and how you can fit in with their team or department.

Overall compensation for your work

Very fair compensation and benefits for the work we do.

Office / Work Environment

Very relaxed work environment - cool office with the right temperature and standing desks for ease of use.

Work-Life Balance

It's a culture of get your work done and leave. No pressure to stay longer unless there is urgency for something but this is rare.

Company Image

I'm proud to work at the Post as we are continuously driving innovation in the publishing world and are getting a lot of recognition for it.

Job Security

There is a lot of security especially when you are adaptable to the changing advertising industry and are learning along the way.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes there is an elevator straight to our floor so no issues for people of disability.

Workplace Safety

I feel extremely safe at work and know that there is nothing left around that is dangerous that can hurt me or my colleagues.

Challenging Work

Every day is a new challenge and we get to deal with many different situations and figure out different solutions for these situations.

Inclusive / Diverse

Everyone gets a say at the Post. No idea is stupid or wrong, we are all working towards a common goal and being diverse while doing it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • It would be great if we did some more training every few months on topics that people struggle with in the role just to stay refreshed.

What I like about the company

I'm allowed to express myself freely and present new or unique ideas to the table without receiving any critism. I also feel at ease knowing I can learn something new every day and grow for my future career.

What I dislike about the company

I can't think of anything that I don't like at the Washington Post.
