Life-draining, talent draining employer who doesnt care about work-life balance.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Wichita, KS

ProsGood benefits and the people that are left are very hard working people. Of course you have to be to take on all the added responsibilities.

ConsThe company is always downsizing or taken from the employees such as increased costs of health coverage, pay cuts, furloughs, increased workload with no added benefits (except be happy you have a job). Even though you may have a vacation balance, its difficult to use it when there is no one to cover, therefore losing any vacation at the end of the year. Perhaps, if they cant get their employees their vacation time, they should at least pay them for what they lose.

Advice to Senior ManagementPresent a case to McClatchy and show how the Eagle has done more with less compared to some of their sister newspapers. Enough said. I dont want to kick a company when they're down.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
