    I worked at USA Today full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Not many. Pay was pretty decent. Office space was nice. But I need more than that.

    Cons

    Management really does not understand digital. There's little to no room for new ideas and thinking. Lack of technology expertise holds the company back in a major way. The "C" students typically stick around and put up with it. The "A" students need more opportunities and decide to move on eventually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire your friends for big positions, just because they're your friends. Hire competent, exceptional talent that can get the job done.

    Pros

    Nice fellow employees, weekends off, major holidays off. If you like looking over your shoulder and wondering if you are next...this is the place for you!

    Cons

    Young people are not buying newspapers--and so you are just servicing folks over 65 and the industry is dead.
