    I have been working at Patch

    Pros

    Great job for getting to know a town and really ingraining yourself in community news and small businesses.

    Cons

    Communication between headquarters and the field can be hit or miss sometimes. You need to be very organized in order to maintain a work-life balance.

    Employees catch heat from dissatisfied customers.

    I have been working at Patch part-time

    Pros

    Most employees are good people, looking for opportunity.

    Cons

    Company doesn't stand by what they advertise. Unsuspecting business people advertise and get a different experience. Small customers bumped for national ads. Employees catch heat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give customers concessions when you say their ads will be above the fold line, but are not because you threw them under the bus for a national ad.
