Trying hard to be relevant

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for more than 8 years

ProsSmart people. Creative workplace. Diverse work force. A lot of effort has gone into encouraging use of new technologies and social media. Experience in experimental story forms.

ConsTop-heavy with managers who contribute little and are a drain on expenses as a result of multiple buy-outs/layoffs.
Long hours, little recognition for long-time employees. A hiring manager once remarked loudly: "A good hire stays 2 years; a bad hire stays 10 years." So much for loyalty.
Newsroom culture favors outside candidates over internal candidates, leading to terrible morale. Loyal employees denigrated and pigeon-holed.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave the courage to face up to who really needs to be cut loose.
Quit favoring outside candidates; give insiders a chance to advance.

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