    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looked bad when you laid people off the same time you bought a new porche. But hey it is your money.

    Current Employee - Account Executive in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Seattle Times full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Strong and reputable name in the community makes for a somewhat easier sell. Excellent work life balance, and focus on training and staff improvement. Very diverse staff. Loyal and proud employees are common here.

    Cons

    micromanagement and slow process makes it near impossible to create new opportunities for clients, and products to expand our offerings. Company is losing money, and requires furlough for all members of the staff in addition to many cost saving efforts leave the sales team without resources that local competitors' provide. Pay is low for simliar sales positions in market.
