Poor

Executive Director (Former Employee)

Prosgood people that care about journalism.
good opportunity in the market to deliver audience needs of advertisers

Consinable to proactively manage change. out of touch with value proposition in the market.
parent company kills any sense of initiative and new ideas

Advice to Senior Managementfish or cut bait- dont pretend you want to change or get better if the only thing that will happen is what the parent company wants. dont have people go through the motions

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: You work with some really talented people – writers, photographers, editors, designers, and illustrators (once upon a time). The salaries were once considered quite high… Cons: Uncertainty is always the cloud hanging over you. There are not that many employees under 30 and longer. Cuts are always in the air… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to your employees. Ask their opinion. Every person I've ever worked with there cares 100%… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
