Pros

Very positive atmosphere - we WILL beat the odds and all the naysayers for the newspaper business!

Cons

Recent layoffs have had a demoralizing effect and increased workloads. Mandatory salary cuts and benefit decreases certainly don't help either.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep looking ahead and be proactive instead of reactive - but realize your best resource is your employees and treat and reward them as such. Loyalty is no longer a foregone conclusion from the employee when it is not reciprocated by the employer.

    Pros

    Great people - its like a family, interesting technologies, plenty to learn, easy to ware many hats, ability to think independently and come up with out of the box solutions.

    Cons

    Management is useless and tends to throw unnecessary road blocks in front of progress. No guidance on direction from senior management. You can can be the best and be layed off while other under performing employees remain for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    embrace quick implementation of new technologies and trends. Reducing head count is hurting you at this point - try coming up with ways of creating larger profits rather than cutting people.

    I worked at McClatchy Company

    Pros

    Before the hammer fell on the newspaper business beginning in 2008 (management missed five million signals in years running up to the debacle) The Star was a good place to work. Opportunities and some support from management

    Cons

    Acts like a company in the midst of a panic, which it is...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the panic mode, and when you make cuts, make intelligent ones, not ones based on frieds of fill-in-the-blank
