Pros

It's a great daily newspaper and an excellent product

Cons

The business model is broken, and has been broken for many years. Little feedback is requested or considered from current employees and support staff, and recent management decisions have left little confidence in the paper's future.

Advice to Management

Start listening to your support staff instead of eliminating them and hiring management teams with no plans.
