    Current Employee - Senior Account Executive in Raleigh, NC

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

    Pros

    Great new product. High name recognition. Used to be a great place to work. I thought I would be able to retire here.

    Cons

    Company did not handle the economic downturn very well. Cut a lot of sales support staffand that has cut sales productivity and quality of product. Reactive instead of proactive to the changing media environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has a ready, shoot, aim attitude to new digital products. They do not fully vet new digital products before rolling out to sales staff. Then the new digital products do not have the support staff to make the new digital work properly.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
