    Seasoned senior management that encouraged ongoing training and wasn't adverse to taking risks.

    Industry as a whole is having a rough time.

  2.  

    Once a great place to work; now shrinking markets and moving some jobs offshore is taking a toll on job satisfaction

    Pros

    The benefits have always been great. Historically, KNS has been a great place for career opportunity and great money for the area. Many have worked there for 20 years or more.

    Cons

    The economy has hit this regional newspaper hard. Cost-cutting activities include lay-offs, outsourcing some jobs (some off-shore and some to outside contractors for less money). There is a whole different atmosphere of insecurity and distrust at KNS now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much focus has been on selling advertising. Management should refocus on creating a great newspaper (and web site) that people want or need to read. Do that and the circulation would go up, which would make selling the advertising less of a battle.
