    I worked at Brown Publishing

    Pros

    There is local autonomy. Typically you're free to be a "steward" at your location and make your own decisions. Local managers are generally caring and try to create a good environment.

    Cons

    Very poor communication between divisions and from top down. To control expenses many positions have been eliminated or cut to PT. Upper management is thin too, thus the "vision" for the company and other important information is poorly distributed if at all. Pay for local department heads and staffers is very poor and merit increase very rarely are given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are a valuable resource...treat them right. Maintain your bottom lines expenses while including warranted wage increase. Get divisions talking and working together rather than as competitors. Hire "consultants" for key areas...advertising, circulation and news, to visit properties and facilitate cooperation while implementing best practices.
