I worked at Austin American-Statesman full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The people here are great. Location is fantastic and the benefits are above average.

Cons

Seems ceiling is low. Few promotions from within, especially for top roles

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This is the media world, don't take yourself so seriously!

    I worked at Austin American-Statesman as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, easy access to downtown, a lot of opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Too many reorganizations at the employee's expenses. Non-fulfillment of promises made and no regard for employees and their well-being.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cox Media needs to get heavily involved in what is going on at the Statesman. The Statesman produces a fantastic product, unfortunately, it's being tarnished by upper management.
