Pros

The people at the Post are great to work with! Additionally, the firm is exploring new ventures and is working to advance the synergy of its digital and print products.

Cons

At the same time, the increasing use of tablets and other print substitutes have put a lot of pressure on the firm.

    Pros

    The people that do the actual work are great people. The tech side of the house is actually filled with very intelligent people.

    Cons

    Leadership is astoundingly bad. There's 0 vision for the company, other than trying to maintain what's left of print circulation. Projects are started and killed a year later despite success. There's no rhyme or reason to anything. Watch massive layoffs to hit the operating income (100's of people), and then the publisher will take a $3million bonus for hitting the target. The industry is only getting worse, and there are absolutely zero plans in progress to address the downward spiral. At this point Don is treating the company like a charity, not a business.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your growth sectors, fire every single one of your executives, cut the middle management, and produce better content. You need ONE person with vision and some people to execute. You currently have around 40 "leaders" with no vision at all.
