I worked at Plain Dealer Publishing for more than 10 years

Pros

There was a time when the PD was the place to work. It was fun, advertisers advertised, our editorial wrote the stories, people worked together.

Cons

Then came buyouts - advertisers began using new means for advertising, news stories pulled from various sources.

As the PD thins out staff, take a look at all the sales people you still have - and there really isn't much advertising to be seen. News stories are so so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Thin out your advertising department. You can get what you currently have running with fewer people. Editorial give your writers opportunities - run their stories.

    It was a great place to work until all the cutbacks, people there are good journalists, understaffed.

    Pros

    Great experience for reporters, editors.

    Cons

    Its owners, Advance Publications, believe that destroying a newspaper is the way to save it. PD is doomed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to get out, too. Advance is determined to prove how smart it is, at the expense of everyone involved.
