Don't go down with a sinking ship

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Tampa, FL

ProsProduct at one time was great. Nice people to work with. could have been a lifelong career.

ConsManagement has no clue about changing times, the paper is not what it use to be.. They sit there and say we are the trib and advertisers need us. This company for years has been reactives as opposed to proactive. Through mismanagement from the top all the way down to the local sales managers has given the St. Pete Times the opportunity to take over the Tampa Bay market.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook for new jobs because It's too late. This company will be shut down and the building and land will be sold. You handed over the market to the Times, hope you enjoye!

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