Family friendly company that is doomed to fail

Pros

Flex time, 5 weeks paid vacation, 6-month sabbatical for every 7 years of service, many women in senior management

Cons

Big discrepancies in pay. The salaries were once so lavish that managers can't afford to leave; they'll never get paid as much anywhere else. Anyone hired before 2000 is likely making over $100,000 -- unheard of in journalism. Hired after that? Different story. The company will eventually go broke because it can't afford its senior management.

    Pros

    Smart, friendly colleagues committed to excellence, great pay and benefits for journalism, pleasant office, flex time, work that matters.

    Cons

    Interdepartmental communication could be better. Tight budgets mean few opportunities for advancement and heavy workloads. Upper management should be more aware of potential burn-out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure employees company-wide really understand the core products and the culture of the worlds that CHE and COP cover.

    Pros

    Hours 9-5pm
    24 Vacation Days
    Unlimited Sick Days
    Relaxed Environment

    Cons

    Totally agree with other reviewer: Old Mentality Higher Ups
    The HR department managed one person for years.
    Not the best place for someone starting out in HR.
    You need to be seasoned and even then good luck with introducing you new HR ideas or practices because "its not the Chronicle way". Well the "Chronicle way" has resulted in low morale, next to no pay raises..there is not a bright future for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of senior managers who have been with The Chronicle for years; They are stuck in their own ways and will not bring the company to the next level.
