    I worked at The San Francisco Chronicle

    Pros

    Great well known employer in the Bay Area. Great benefits and ability to join a union. Wages are pretty good for starting pay.

    Cons

    HIghly bureaucratic environment. The Chronicle is owned by Hearst and it really shows in how they function as a business unit. Hitting your sales quota isnt easy and they make them artificially high. Senior management stresses mid management which then stresses sales because Hearst stresses everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make goals achievable and realistic.
