    I worked at Digital First Media full-time (more than an year)


    DFM hires some of the best and brightest reporting talent, especially ones fresh out of college. You'll work with passionate, caring reporters who have a real drive for news. The work-life balance is OK, you'll have a lot of opportunities to work in your community and create your own schedule around your beat.


    Poor leadership from higher ups has created a rift between those doing the work and those making top-dollar. Decisions are made from the top that seem out-of-touch with the current state of media. Reporters are given unreal expectations for producing copy (5 posts per day). Pay is also quite low compared to competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with your staff. Your actions and mindless "investing" in "new technology" is hurting your relationship with your reporters and the communities you serve. Focus on the product instead of flashy gimmicks.
