Pros

Newsbank was a great place to work. Company understands that employees need a balance between work and life outside of work. Company owner takes great pride in getting to know each and every employee. Management is deeply involved what is going on day to day. They are the pioneers in newspaper archiving and as such have great relationships with that publishing world.

Cons

Most of the folks that work here have done so for years so the chances of moving up in this company are limited.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company is a little slow to adopt new things. In a way you are in the technology field and should look for help outside of the company at times. Do not rely exclusively on your in house talent.

    Pros

    very tightly knit core group of employees who have wealth of company and industry information

    Cons

    same - very tightly knit core group of employees who have wealth of industry and company information (given blind trust, often to sr. managemet long term disadvantage). These people are mostly interested in protecting their own personal interests

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    truly welcome new ideas from outsiders and new blood. Sr. management welcomes sharing information as long as it doesn't conflict with their micro-management perspective.

    Hire younger people in touch with current marketplace realities and technology, and most importantly, empower them to make needed changes.
