Good product, Bad leadership

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Orland Park, IL

ProsThe little hyper-local newspapers are a great source for local news. Over all it could be a good product and business model.

ConsThe turn over at the company is beyond crazy. The salaries are horrible unless you work in the Northbrook office. It s disorganized at best. The office is dirty and cluttered. The benefit package is bad and expensive. The management team is young and inexperienced. One manager is yelling and using foul language while the other is so disorganized that questions go unanswered. They do not take responsibility for their own mistakes, rather heep it on to those who do the grunt work.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the top management and bring qualified people in. Clean up the office as it is disgusting. Pay a decent salary and qualified people will be interested. Give respect to the work force and they will work hard.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    An "old school" newsroom culture, battle for market dominance and winning editorial formula make this a great workplace.
