    Pros

    In spite of the immense challenges currently facing the newspaper industry, the Sun-Times News Group is an excellent place to work (if you don't focus on the uncertainties). Almost every colleague I encounter seems incredibly dedicated to helping the company succeed; this kind of commitment creates strong teamwork and a "we're in this together" attitude.

    Cons

    The company is for sale and running out of cash, so job security does not exist right now. Most details of the sale process are not public knowledge (understandably so, but it can be a challenge to stay focused).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once we move beyond the sale process with new ownership, remember that much of the success and improvement we have seen recently can be attributed to the renewed sense of teamwork, both within and across departments. Put a plan in place that keeps all departments working closely with each other, assisting each other, and contributing to a cohesive organization in the future.
