Pros

You have the opportunity to learn many new tasks that can really beef up your resume
Free to be as creative as you want
Overall work atmosphere is enjoyable

Cons

Extremely long hours with no compensation

Management will sympathize with you but will not offer any solution

Advice to Management

Increase the pay for your editors (they earn it!) and help employees comes up with solutions to their work problems instead of just being that shoulder to cry on

    Pros

    There is a strong sense of family. Co-workers that care about their peers and are willing to go the extra mile.

    Cons

    No growth or advancement opportunities. Poor decision making on the part of middle and senior managers. Low morale due to layoffs and indifference by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Before deciding on a plan of action, think it through before it's implemented. Saving $100 today may cost $10,000 a month or two later. Open lines of communication with your employees and stop trying to bs them. They know better and so should you.


  2. A steady job, but don't expect much advancement

    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.
