Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at McClatchy Company full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I honestly can't think of many. I suppose that the pay could be worse, and it is in some places. But the frequent furloughs tend to negate that aspect.

Cons

Corrupt middle and lower management, absolute fools in upper management. Lots of cronyism, favoritism, opportunism. If you're not part of "the gang," then beware. Promotions tend to follow the classic pattern of the Peter Principle, including the targeting of super-competent subordinates for eventual dismissal.

Advice to Management

To upper management, get a brain. To lower and middle management, get some moral fiber.
