Over a period of several years there were many highs and lows with the last five mostly lows.

Manager (Former Employee) Pontiac, MI

ProsThe employees are great at this company. Hard working local managers and staff that really care about the local products and the communities that they serve. The communities need these publications and the employees understand the mission of serving the communities and advertisers with the best content and advertising services.

ConsThe last five years have been rough as the there have been no raises, increased heath care employee contributions and several layoffs. Also the corporate management has no real direction and organization. I believe this is a sign of weak leadership at the top of the organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a strategy to monetize your valuable content and then improve then relaunch your brands with the idea of providing marketing services to businesses. This needs to be done in an organized fashion.

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