    I was a founder of the newspaper in 1982, gave them 30 years of loyal service, then was discarded like trash for money.

    I worked at USA Today full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a good company

    Cons

    Duplicitous, incompetent management. They treat employees like garbage and make up for all their business mistakes by punishing or firing employees who actually do the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loyalty matters. Just shedding older workers and hiring young neophytes is not a recipe for success. Cutting expenses, including workers, is not how you grow. It just buys you a couple more years. Come up with a real plan (although I do not believe you are really capable of this) then invest in it.
