I worked at Houston Press full-time (less than an year)Pros
It was nice always being in the know with what was going on in Houston.Cons
-Horrible hours. They claim the average day hours are from 8AM-6PM, but that's not the case. Expect to work at least a 60 hour week on average.
-Management is a horrible. The root of the problem is the Publisher; both because of his attitude and his inability to be an effective and motivating boss. He will come off as caring and cool in the interview, but as soon as your on the checkbook he becomes a completely different person. Nothing is ever good enough and he is verbally abusive to his staff.
-You are paid nothing in comparison to the time and effort you put in.
-The office moral is terrible. Nobody is happy thus, you have a toxic work environment. In the short time I was there, 6-8 people had quit. No one ever left on good terms.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Listen to your employees. When they are upset or avoid communicating with you, obviously something needs to be done. I challenge the management to really take a step back and look at the well being and happiness of your employees. There's a reason Houston's numbers were always below the other markets - happy employees make for a more successful company. When someone tells you that your employees are unhappy, believe them. And understand why it is that they don't care to cultivate any sort of relationship with you.Doesn't RecommendNeutral Outlook
