The management style at USA TODAY NETWORK differs from team to team, but flexibility and an easy-going nature are consistent across the board. Though the newsroom is often buzzing with stories and excitement, leaders set great examples of how to treat employees and hit deadlines—all while keeping tabs on trends and sharing big-picture goals with everyone on board.
The newsroom comes with plenty of excitement, so employees choose casual gatherings over adventurous off-sites. Taking walks around the campus pond or heading to local eateries are standard—but no one turns down Wednesday Fun Days, especially if breakfast or special events are involved. Employee Awards are also a favorite, and the GoForward Committee that organizes employee resource groups offers a slew of additional perks.
