Great learning experience.

Senior Account Executive (Current Employee)
Nashville, TN

I have been working at Clipper Magazine full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat way to learn print advertising. Stay long enough to learn the business. Then, move on to more fertile ground.

ConsRaises are hard to come by....don't stay too long! They try a lot of knee jerk reactions to up revenue, but don't think it thru. Winds up being a mess a lot of times.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo many high paid chiefs and not enough low paid Indians. Managers don't really manage until there own jobs are being threatened.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Used to be a great place to work until Gannett moved in.

Graphic Artist (Former Employee)
Mountville, PA

I worked at Clipper Magazine full-time

ProsMy co-workers were great and that was the best part.

ConsBad management, bad pay, horrible benefits. Ridiculous time and money spent on special events instead of paying people.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to recognize talent and pay people a decent wage. Too many layers of management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Depends on te person

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Mountville, PA

I have been working at Clipper Magazine full-time

ProsClipper magazine is absolutely not a bad place to work. The company is laid back, i've worn jeans and a sweatshirt multiple times. Even when you are in the low positions, you do hold power. Because of the wide variety of people, there is bound to be someone or many people you will get along with. Managers do a good job at being approachable and open, but still get things done.

ConsYou can have a week where you have 5 things on your plate. That does not take up a week's worth of time. Evertything is very micromanaged. While the amount of people is somewhat necessary, it also seems extremely unnecessary at times. Often seems like there is too much time that nothing is happening.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management is pretty good. I would really only say feel free to give more work, if available to your team. Also CEO is no longer Steve Zuckerman, it is now Steve Hauber. So far, seems to be going okay.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

A great place to work when you are just starting out in the workforce

Operations Manager (Current Employee)
Mountville, PA

I have been working at Clipper Magazine full-time for more than 8 years

ProsClose knit, tight relationship community with an easy going and relaxed atmosphere. Easily accessible management team open to meetings and discussions. Very easy to become settled in your position.

ConsEntry level lower paying positions that keep employees minimally motivated. Less frequent performance reviews leading employees to do the bare minimum. Difficult to move up.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore frequent performance reviews with more detailed feedback based on performance. Increase goal setting with milestone achievements to increase motivation and morale.

OK place to start, but get out quick

Graphic Artist (Current Employee)
Mountville, PA

I have been working at Clipper Magazine full-time for more than a year

Pros· People you work with are usually friendly & helpful
· 2nd shift hours (4:45pm-3:15am Mon-Thurs) are nice

Cons· Upper Management doesn't seem to care about employees
· No raises (even cost of living) in 4 years
· Unexplained bitterness between 1st & 2nd shifters
· Low pay for how many different things we have to do
· Art Directors are basically ad processors, no chance to truly art direct
· It's all about production, little appreciation for great work

Advice to Senior ManagementTake some time and look at the numbers between 1st and 2nd shift. You will surely see that we put out more ads of better quality and with fewer mistakes than 1st shift, even though we have about 40% of their workforce.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
