    I worked at The Charlotte Observer full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    When I started there, they offered pension plans, etc. I worked with some people who had been there over 15 years. I was looking for a place where I could stay long term. I also worked with some terrific people whom I am still friends with to this day and I see socially.

    Cons

    I was put on a PIP plan (performance improvement plan) at the end of 2010 during the downturn. Most of my clients worked in in the real estate or construction business and they were not renewing. I had 2 months to turn my numbers around. Impossible situation. I made a case to HR that I was a contributor and some things (like the economy) were out of my control. No one cared and I was let go. I was able to collect unemployment which I did for 8 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have a lot of managers who are busy trying to manage each other. Stop playing games with the employees - it costs a lot to have to constantly rehire and train people. No wonder they can't be profitable.
