    Current Employee - Advertising in Raleigh, NC

    I have been working at The News & Observer full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some great success stories with smaller projects. Newsroom still has people passionate about the mission of the local news organization, and it is exciting to be involved in those creative research and presentation projects.

    Cons

    Upper management and McClatchy corporate leadership are content to let the business slide into oblivion, riding out the slide until they can retire. The best leaders are stuck in middle-management and unable to effect real change in the organization. Advertising is run by a tinpot dictator with personal favorites and whose idea of change is to rearrange seating charts.
