  1. Working at Daily Press

    Pros

    It's like a family. Great customers, great people. Good food.

    Cons

    Not many cons to speak of. Sometimes people get mad that we don't sell tobacco or alcohol.

    I worked at Daily Press part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Deadline driven (Newspaper) , excellent process flows, well established company.

    Cons

    Have many facility items that should be upgraded/replaced, writers/publishers are using very antiquated equipment (PCs/MACs) which require older software.

    Advice to Management

    Due the due diligence, establish a plan for the business, research IT solutions (server & deskside), develop a plan for deployment in parallel to current systems, get a bigger server room with adequate ventilation/cooling, tighten your security. Be realistic in what 1 person can do in 25 hours/week when supporting 60+ users and servers. Treat people the WAY you want to be treated.

  6. Declining readership and advertising dollars equals declining earning potential

    Pros

    Great place to work if you enjoy calling on local small to medium businesses. The Daily Press is a trusted brand within the local business community. Management team does not micro-mange and each sales rep has the autonomy to build their account list.

    Cons

    Company has a poor track record of rolling out a competitive pay plan. Sales reps are told they can earn 60K or more, but this not true. I have seen very talented people depart this organization because of the earning potential.

    Advice to Management

    News print is an eroding industry, and I believe management would like to offer their reps a better salary. Declining readership and advertising revenue is causing quality sales reps to walk out the door. Find a way to offer a competitive salary

    Pros

    Smart, aggressive people who want to grow the media space

    Cons

    Emerging from BK was a drag

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring smart people
