Pros

Good employee camaraderie, access to reasonable technology, McClatchy Interactive does provide updated training on digital media for Centre Daily Times and all its other properties

Cons

Limited commission potential for sales, reduced skeleton staff makes job harder to accomplish with its overload of assigned tasks, industry is not growing or redeveloping itself fast enough to stay stable in the face of changing media environments

Advice to Management

To gain a better understanding of coaching and mentoring, along with better business practices. Lessen the "fear factor" approach of employee mentoring to dissolve the already existent toxic environment

    Pros

    Management encourages people with good ideas and initiative, promotes from within whenever possible. New editorial staff is changing the direction of focus to new media. Digital emphasis blooming with new publisher.

    Cons

    It is hard to be a locally focused company as part of a large national chain, especially in an industry like the media.
