100% of the CEO
Patrick J. (Pat) Purcell
Pros – Client relationships and sophisticated sales efforts provide excellent results. Strong salary and commission plus bonuses with strong performance. Great upward mobility opportunities
Cons – Can be very long sales cycle.
Advice to Senior Management – Results matter. People really do still buy people even with complicated product suites.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Very good people work here, unfortunately a few bad apples in management spoil the bunch.
Cons – Management is delusional and is the soul cause of this company's downfall. This is a horrible place for a young professional to get their start in the business world. The department lacks vision and thus new employees here will find a place where it is impossible to grow professionally.
Advice to Senior Management – Slice the ego in half, listen to the insights of your subordinates, value teamwork and equality.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Good place to start in the world of print journalism.
Cons – Salary is low. Chance of advancing in the company low. Competency of mid-level and senior editors is low.
Advice to Senior Management – Recognize hard work and talent. Respect the contract: when an employee gets a glowing report from a supervisor, and by contract, when the annual raise is to be between 3-6%, don't give only a 3% raise.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – A truly great group of people for coworkers makes hard work still pleasant. The Times is suffering as in industry in turmoil, and this will impact job stability. The company is evolving somewhat rapidly.
Cons – Do you really want to work at a newspaper? Oh, wait, it's a media company. There's always hope that the company will really get its head around competing digitally - and hope that corporate will help not hinder.
Advice to Senior Management – Push hard. Push faster. Push back. Tell corporate to get their act together and deliver. How about better pay to go with the more work being handed out to everybody?
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Willing to listen to any suggestions, although it may take months for anything to happen.
Hire great professionals who are good at what they do.
Cons – Lack of corporate commitment or involvement. Corporate would rather have "yes" people who just follow the rules and don't try and rock the boat.
