Company Will Not Invest in People or Infrastructure

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New Haven, CT

Pros- One of very few opportunities still left in print journalism
- Seems to be interested in (finally) becoming a true multimedia company
- High turnover provides an opportunity to get experience

Cons- Poor pay and benefits
- Years of mismanagement has destroyed all employee morale
- Disgraceful internal communication
- Literally years behind in terms of IT and industry trends
- Despite new corporate leadership and one bankruptcy, still a company that refuses to make any significant investment in people or product

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that after emerging from bankruptcy purse strings are tight, but continuing to practice the cheapskate journalism perfected by Robert Jelenic (which resulted in bankruptcy) and calling it "The Ben Franklin Project" is not the way to re-build a company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
