I have been working at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Pros

Smart co-workers
Fun job, get to use creative skills
Good location if you use public transit
Good position to collect a lot of examples of your work for your resume
Casual dress code, environment

Cons

Management highly incompetent
Little turnover management-wise, despite their lack of performance
Poor communication with staff
Show personal vendettas against certain employees
Poor news judgment
Managers only care about saving their own jobs, not doing what is best for their staff.
A drink-the-kool-aid atmosphere prevails.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest about issues that need addressing.
Be more inclusive on major decisions that impact staff.
Fire middle managers that are just treading water and offer no value to the company.

    The name recognition and decent insurance plans

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your first customers are your employees. Treat your employees like you care and pay them competitively and maybe they'll be motivated to stay. Your employees are the best "word of month" tool for you...continue to do them wrong and they will continue to be the worst "word of month" tool for you.
