Pros

Very nice building (cafeteria, gym, parking, Tysons)

Cons

Morale was at all time low. Senior mgt and Executive mgt truly do not care about the employees. Very short term thinking with resources. No investment into the future and strategic direction changes continually.

Advice to Management

Do the little things for employees. Care. Listen to staff. Don't just cut cut cut cut.

    Pros

    Large company, with a national impact. No matter what your function, the news business is always busy, many opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    The print business is contracting, makes for a lot of morale problems. If you're considering taking a job here, make sure it is very involved in non-print divisions.

    Pros

    Great Base Salary. Local Territory.

    Cons

    No ramp up period for goals in a declining print market with tons of advertising competition. If you don't meet your goal on your first time out you are automatically placed on a PIP. Tons of training material with little instruction.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting money training people and not giving them a chance to perform. If a new rep came on board and did just as much or more than a senior rep does, why would you keep your senior reps? It took time for your senior reps to perfect their skills, just as it is going to take time for a new rep.
