Former Employee - Ad Sales in Deerfield Beach, FL
Former Employee - Ad Sales in Deerfield Beach, FL
Recommends
Disapproves of CEO

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 Management

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

    Former Employee - Reporter in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Former Employee - Reporter in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

    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.


  2. The future
