Pros – Good work / life balance. There isn't a 9-5 mentality. Dress is casual and there are occasional employee benefits events such as company lunch or HR handing out free popcorn.
Cons – Bad management at the upper most levels. Decisions are bottle necked by top management who feel they have to approve every decision. Top management often asks company to work with third party vendors who are run by close friends and former co-workers. Entrenched pockets of old media people in charge of technology decisions they have no experience with.
Advice to Senior Management – Create a culture of innovation. You have smart people working for you but they are not allowed to innovate and improve. Adopt something similar to Google's 20% time. Print newspapers may not be dead but we can agree that they are dying. As such, it's only prudent to begin to make the funeral arrangements. Start planning a post print strategy now and move in that direction.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
