    Independence...really have the opportunity to make a lot of money if you actually work. Fun work atmosphere coworkers esp in the sales department really look out for each other and are always looking for new opportunities

    A lot of competition within the industry that generally just undercut your prices and flat out lie about their circulation

    I have been working at Kenosha News

    Pros

    Dogged dedication to reporting local news. Little interference with the direction of beat reporting. Bottomless news hole for worthwhile stories. Exposure to a wide range of subjects.

    Cons

    Slow to take advantage of new technology. New ideas often wither on the vine or disappear in a lengthy consideration process. Not immune to layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Letting some new ideas incubate longer or benefit from greater support may do some good for newsroom morale and strengthen the paper's standing with savvy readers.

    I worked at Kenosha News part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company encompasses change and focuses on innovating its products and services.

    Cons

    Tasks conducted did not focus on improving client relations and customer service. Very little culture, practically no values.

    Having a conflicted opinion hinders growth opportunities with middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When asking employees for input or ideas - take the time to actually listen to them.

    Do not lie to your employees, be direct, and don't elude confrontations - it creates an unfavorable environment for everyone.
