    I have been working at Lee Enterprises full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid benifits. Friendly coworkers. Hardworking local management. Get lots of training on the operating and maintenance of offset presses. Really good paid vacation and paid holidays.

    Cons

    Concerns about job security. Rate of pay seems below average. Press equipment is outdated and not in the best of shape. Need more innovation and ideas to attract more business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that there needs to be more innovation and changes made to adapt to a changing newspaper business that is being negatively effected by the internet.
