    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Time off as needed. Flexible schedule. Decent pay/benefits. Friendly environment.

    Cons

    Decisions on software products have been made by people outside IT department, which led to terrible large-scale purchases. Old technology/l lots of Perl/PHP scripts that only a very few people have a clue about. Very old/clunky/inefficient/unreliable home-grown systems. Developers are expected to support this old software. Very few (none?) new projects using current technologies. Newspaper industry's immanent demise has been accelerated by the recession causing thousands of layoffs, followed by pay cuts across the board and cut-backs on some benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for management. Unfortunately this field is required.
