Used to Be Great

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Dayton, OH

ProsGreat company history and started in Dayton.

ConsCostly Insurance, Low Pay, Huge Downsizing, Play Favorites, Products have become irrelevant for clients (both readers and advertisers). Newspaper readership declined by 35% the last 10 years...revenue had similar decline. Hanging on by a string...recently out sources creative to India. Cares about staying a float regardless of who they have to fire. Company future is very uncertain. Directors and up are way out of touch of what changes need to be made.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit. The boat isn't going to stop sinking.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
