Pros

Gain experience, learn how to work with many kinds of people

Cons

Low pay, no job security, lack of resources and ambition to innovate,

Advice to Management

If you don't think out of the box, you won't survive. Treat editorial employees like human beings, and you will strengthen your workforce. Dignity and respect go a long way. Making people do more for less only reaps short-term gains.

    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.
