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

    Pros

    Successfully managed a daily newspaper in Ohio with over a million in outstanding receivables. Ran all credit checks to determine credit worthiness, determined credit limits. Maintained aging with making advanced credit calls, placing accounts with appropriate collection agencies, determine and presented quarterly candidates for uncollectable write off.

    Cons

    Uncertainty within the company structure, Journal Register filed for bankruptcy protection and the possibility of the company closing its Michigan operations has loomed more than once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strong detailed Bookkeeper AR / Credit analyst from the beginning of the loan or credit request using credit and financial software to determine the credit worthiness of the client. Monitoring Receivables and Credit within the organization and reporting to portfolio manager and upper management, along with appropriate credit reporting agency.

    I worked at Journal Register

    Pros

    There is nothing good about working for this company. Absolutely.

    Cons

    Top/down bottom line management style more concerned with shaving pennies than paying attention to the needs of the community it "serves" or the interests of employees. If you want to work long hours for below market wages with the constant threat of layoffs, go right ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people and stop chasing pipe dreams. You've wasted good opportunities by investing in the wrong management and the wrong ways to service your customers. You've forgotten what journalism is about. Hint. Its not about filling the "news hole."
