    Going downhill fast...

    I worked at The San Francisco Chronicle

    Pros

    When I initially started we had a very strong family atmosphere. As a part of their new "Gatelist" division we had a lot of freedom to define or role and set processes in place. The benefits were OK... Vacation and sick time were generous. As a part of the Guild, healthcare was dirt cheap. A few years ago they got moved onto the Hearst management plans so everyone, management and guild employees, are paying the same amount. I personally had a lot of autonomy to run things my way once I was promoted to management in operations. My old manager was really focused on my career development.

    Cons

    The core sales teams are a joke. They don't sell. They have no interest in learning anything. It's no wonder the newspaper industry is dealing with declining revenue, because their sales people are all used to the time when newspapers were king and sales just came to them. Worse yet, many of them are just bad people. Mean, petty, unprofessional.

    Over the years, as friends moved on to new jobs, the family atmosphere went away. My current boss essentially managed me out.

    Local Edge is backwards. They are 10 years behind when it comes to their processes and I don't think they have the people there to get that fixed anytime soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chronicle: stop treating sales like children. Grow up and manage them. You have Salesforce, USE IT. Don't forget about your support people. If you are the head of AdOps, remember to talk to all of your team, not just the DMPs. some day the chronicle will update their billing system and it will starry to make sense.

    Local Edge: you need to get simpler. Not more complex with your orders. The burdens of finding and providing fulfillment information currently lies at the reseller level. But ensuring that fulfillment was followed and having final say over it falls into LocalEdges hands. If you want final say over these things, then you need to take ownership of more of the details of fulfillment. The resellers should only be providing you with a holistic overview.
