It's a job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Walnut Creek, CA

ProsThe only pro is you don't have to be that good to keep your job. You basically have to use a really bad word publicly to even get a notice.

ConsLack of leadership. Lack of opportunities. Managment doesn't care and it shows. People who try to do a good job are just put aside so not as to threaten anybody above them. Serious lack of leadership, wimpy in fact. There are maybe two people in charge who can make a decision to save their lives.
When mistakes are made, so are excuses depending on who made the mistake. It's always "OK' or 'fine."

Advice to Senior ManagementIt really seems like they don't care.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If you have no experience, start here. Otherwise, move on.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at MediaNews


    Pros: It's a good place to get your foot in the door. But don't stay too long. Set a time limit for how long you'll be… Cons: Once you're in, there's no chance of moving up at the paper.… Advice to Senior Management: They should do more to protect employees. More
