Pros

Smart people, best news organization in the world. Terrific opportunities, sad that the revenue model for the industry is broken.

Cons

Not always a meritocracy. Can be sludgy and bureaucratic. Would be helpful if people switched jobs more often to change perspectives.

    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

    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.
