Pros

The people were phenomenal to work with. The manaagement team was fair and open. Ideas were solicited and acted upon. Work-life balance was challenging but encouraged. Assignements were robust; cross functional teamwork was strongly encouraged and rewarded.

Cons

Elongated bankruptcy process placed a drag on employee engagement and productivity. Lack of strong commitment to employee development and training. Print media is on a down-ward spiral and long-term career advancement is questionable at best.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to celebrate the sucesses of the employees. Continue to to encourage management fundamentals and provide appropriate training for employees.

    Pros

    They give you access to a number of media sources ( print, direct mail, TV, online) to use for client campaigns. Training is above par and co-workers are a great source of knowledge and support.

    Cons

    Advancement takes alot of A@# kissing and not based solely on merit. Changing pay scale on a monthly basis without notice. They prevent you from making money once you start to suceed with a pay plan. They have thinking stuck in the 80s before the internet and that leaves them behind compared to most media companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes to the talent with your salespeople. Start to pay the creative teams and get some marketing people with some creativity.

    I worked at South Florida Sun Sentinel

    Pros

    Good editors, exciting city to work and live in, lots of crime and corruption going on make good stories. Pay is higher than at other papers in the area.

    Cons

    Job insecurity. Too many layoffs made it difficult to work there. You see your good friends go and then are asked to do their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's not much to do, the same situation is seen across other papers, it's a tough industry. Still, overall editors are understanding and are going through the same challenges.
