Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Sun-Sentinel full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Slightly better pay for graphic artist jobs. Full health benefits and the ability to accrue paid vacation time. Other job opportunities in the company to apply for. Day or nighttime shifts.

Cons

The company offers very little or no raises at an employee's yearly review. New positions are very commonly treated as lateral moves so there's no extra pay for transferring. There is a lot of micro-management. Morale is low as the newspaper industry in general is suffering.

Advice to Management

Focus more on new money-generating ideas and stop bombarding the employees with processes and procedures. Also consider offering raises to all your employers rather than just bonuses for upper management.

    I have been working at Sun-Sentinel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working hour flexibility, enormous commissions and bonuses for sales, lower level managers are nice to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of minority & women diversity in management and salaried jobs, non-sales employees don't receive bonuses or salary raises.

    Advice to Management

    Be more accepting of change and stop resisting it. Allow new ideas to flourish. The philosophies that worked 15 years ago no longer work today.

    Pros

    freedom to do work on your own ideas and work with very talented people.

    Cons

    set in the old ways... dictated by a corporate structure 1500 miles away. We made all the money and they spent it so fast that the company had to be sold....Zell (new owner)is trying but they (staff) still don't get it.

    Advice to Management

    open your eyes and move fast on new ideas. you have good people. Ask them how to reinvent the business..This is a seat of the pants feeling....... they are not teaching this stuff in school...
