Former employee at Fort Worth newsroom

Copy Editor (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX

ProsI 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
