Dated budget / priority parameters

I worked at Journal Communications full-time for more than a year

ProsInteresting and diverse subject matter, local focus. If you're a local working here it gives you a strong sense of hometown pride.

ConsDying print newspaper business model, focus on new media needed. The interactive branch has been identified as the future of the company, but those in charge of staffing hire on the cheap instead of finding qualified individuals with appropriate skill sets. This affects all products and projects negatively in the end.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean house, start over with your digital design and development teams or start outsourcing to dedicated interactive firms.

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