The organisation on the whole is a great place to start off a career in journalism. People are encouraged to think things through and communicate with each other to learn as much as possible about the profession. There's also good camaraderie between people and everyone is willing to help out if required.
The management is too set in its ways and refuses to listen to any ideas that may result in the slightest improvement. After a little while, you can also reach the point where you have learnt all that you can and for anyone looking to have a vital career, this place can only be treated as a stepping stone. People are also very confused about what exactly they want from the newspaper, which kind of defeats the purpose of having it.
Advice to Management
Update the website: give it a more web2.0 spin, maybe set up a social networking channel. And most importantly, compile a singular editorial policy that MUST be followed by everyone. Get everyone onboard and ensure that the people who are not working adequately are cut loose.
