    I worked at Digital First Media full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I work at a local paper, so I can't speak for the entire company. But here are my observations:
    - Dedicated local staff that really believes in what they do and wants to keep local journalism alive
    - New web sites and print design have modernized the products
    - Good place to learn and practice new media skills

    Cons

    - Overall business plan failing, hedge fund owner looking to sell properties and titles
    - Multiple rounds of layoffs cutting into and degrading the core editorial product
    - Pay low even for this business, plus high co-pay / contributions on health care plan; no raises for several years
    - Future very murky at the moment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Find new owners, maybe local, that can live with a smaller, but more sustainable profit margin
    - Market local titles better
    - Stop cutting core content staff and slow the turnover of digital sales staff
    - Find new sources of revenue such as full-service digital business marketing, specialty sites and web development
