I have been working at Press Democrat

Pros

Excellent benefits including substantial paid time off. The compensation appears to be much higher than that of other companies in the surrounding areas and I always feel valued as an employee.

Cons

There are many benefits of being owned by such a large company (NYT), however, at times this can have a negative impact on the speed of change as there are multiple steps in the approval process.

    Pros

    Benefits are good and the salary is average

    Cons

    Internal politics, lack of communication or chnage to it's employees, always feeling as though today might be your last working there.
    a confusion as what products will be sold and by whom.
    an overall lack of quality leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house, create a new environment by replacing most of the old guard. stay the course with digital and reward those whom have educated knowledge of what should be sold when.
    too many order takers and print pushers

    Short-time contract a long, long time ago when the paper crew feared the online crew.
