I worked at Scripps full-time

Pros

Benefits, medium-sized salaries, good working environment, friendly co-workers.

Cons

Our department wasn't allowed to attend all meetings which in my opinion, were imperative. Policies were well defined through online training however, changed from time to time within our local station (unwritten) and were not well-defined on a local level, mostly regarding PTO and how it was supposed to be used. It was defined one way in the company-wide meeting and seminar but then changed later, too late for some of us in our department causing unjust 'warning' letters about our attendance. Also, those in our local station could not move up or move into different departments due to Scripps bringing in their 'own' people, after our station being bought. Little or no opportunities for advancement.

    I worked at Scripps full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company to work for as a journalist, as newspaper companies go. They do want to do good work and will let you and encourage you to do so, although much depends on the particular place you're at.

    Cons

    They will work you like a dog if you let them. Had multiple editors who thought that unpaid overtime was owed to the paper habitually, out of love of the profession, and questioning that was disloyal. I did it for a while and then stood my ground and I'm glad I did, or I would have been miserable -- and never able to do anything good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the story of the goose that laid the golden egg. It's not complicated.

    I worked at Scripps as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They pay on time and without too much of a hitch

    Cons

    They pay very little on time without too much of a hitch. Even though you may be perfectly acceptable to work for them as a 1099 contractor, getting a full time position is entirely another matter altogether. It's almost as if you don't exist even though you are already posting news articles for them as a freelance contractor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice that would be seriously taken into account. However, when you buy cheap labor, you get cheap labor.
