Current Employee - Director in McLean, VA

Pros

Lots of career avenues to choose or focus on. Listens to the employees for the most part. Pay and bonus are reasonable.

Cons

Most people within focus on declining newspaper business. Lots of overlap in the technical roles in the divisions and the service organizations like IT.

    Pros

    If you do your job well within the company, it is a fairly secure position. Now that they have made so many cut backs,.the positions they have left are essential employees.

    Cons

    They are constantly revising their direction that they want to go. Instead of focusing on current products and making it good, they look for new products way too often and the core products get neglected. Even on core products, sometimes I think management make changes in order to justify their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop getting distracted by the shiny object and tend to the business at hand. Get it right before you move on to something else.

    Pros

    Benefits were decent (when they actually processed them)

    Cons

    Where do I start?! Incredibly hostile work environment, horrible pay, over working employees, management/payroll/HR do nothing to correct errors, changing payroll without proper notice, no room for growth except when it comes to growing your workload.

    This place was one of the biggest mistakes I could make when looking for an employer. Teams never offered support, treated with utter disregard and disrespect. Threatened with job loss for not putting extra hours in then refusing to pay for said hours and meeting goals. STAY AWAY!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect and support your employees not bully them.
