Former Employee - Newsroom Staff in Wilmington, NC

Pros

The climate in Wilmington is wonderful as are the people in the community.The newsroom is mostly made up of transplants who thought they would stay for a couple years and move on to a bigger paper but never left.

Cons

The newspaper industry is the root of the problem here. It is nearing extinction and corporate is bleeding every penny out of the smaller papers in the chain to help the Old Gray Lady survive.

Advice to Management

Get over yourselves and realize that you will not survive the death of print media by updating the website 20 times a day with poorly written stories that the staff has not been given the time to work on.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Prestige, cafeteria, free newspapers, lovely building. Management very easy going, almost too lax. Sort of like nero fiddling while Rome burning

    Cons

    Slow moving, still stuck in the past. Wish they would be more forward thinking and embrace technology. Stop keeping everything so inside.

    Advice to Management

    get with the times. Promote from within. Pay your staff comparable. I'm leaving for greener pastures since your salaries are so behind the times

    Pros

    Great paper. Not afraid to spend money to cover a story. Great journalists. Very creative people, for the most part. A generally convivial atmosphere and spirit of teamwork. Everyone generally takes great pride in tthe paper.

    Cons

    A few bad apples, but that's true anywhere. An increasingly heavy emphasis on the digital side, which I realize is necessary to keep the paper economically viable but which also puts much more pressure on staff editors and, I'm sure, reporters, with no increase in salary and, in fact, a decrease these last few years in the number of employees. Often, not as much time for copy editors to work on a story as was once the case, partly because of so many extra tasks related to the Web site.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the young digital staff you are hiring are more skilled in editing, to take some of the burden off editors trying to put out the traditional print editions.
