Every employee I know here is miserable

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Saratoga Springs, NY

ProsThe junior employees help each other out as much as possible because we all understand the near impossibility it is to complete our work with the technology we have by the deadlines set.

ConsWe have regular tech problems to the point that we have to take the possibility of of a system meltdown as a known variable to the day's workflow. There is next to no communication from management to the junior workers. Orders from management tend to conflict with their previous orders, creating no-win situations. The emphasis on finally undertaking the multimedia end of journalism has been without adding new employees, so that the already underpaid staff is now undertaking even more responsibilities.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove communication within the newsroom so that the different sections are doing the same things. Make an effort to explain changes so that the employees better understand why the changes are necessary, thus improving morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
