ProsNice facility, beautiful grounds with jogging path and volleyball area. Lots of vending machines, nice Christmas dinner. It was a great place to work and paid well. All benefits from health and life insurance to 401k and pension.

ConsCorporate environment, stiff - not casual dress. Outsourced the entire Art Department to India in 2007. Was very management heavy - 6 or 7 managers for about 30 workers. Management was predominantly male - and not very supportive of females. Management was extremely resistant to updating technology; it took a great deal longer to complete the task with archaic procedures, equipment and methods; it was very frustrating.. and then they tried to justify outsourcing by calling the staff "inefficient"! The paper is owned by a private family and is unmistakably Conservative. They literally bought up all of the competition.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: -private company, family-owned -ability to entertain clients through connections with local sports / events -owns most of the print products in the market -good product training and analysis… Cons: -does not think too highly of smaller competitors in central ohio -territory account executives are on a gauranteed draw (strictly commission) while other advertising reps are… Advice to Senior Management: Spend more time in the field with your associates and help them close new business and you will… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
