    People are nice, but management is

    I have been working at New Jersey On-Line part-time

    Pros

    The people are friendly, hard working and professional. It's a small paper, but everyone is dedicated to putting out the best product possible. They recently moved to a new office, so the environment is nice. The pay is decent.

    Cons

    Management is...flaky. Changes are promised and never come. I was asked in for a two-week tryout four months after my interview, then was hired for two days a week even though I was never told during the hiring process that the position would be part time. There is a lot of moving people around into different roles indefinitely. The office is very short staffed.

    Current Employee - Sales in Morristown, NJ

    I have been working at New Jersey On-Line full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    No one cares about anything so there is no accountability for getting work done or doing a good job

    Cons

    Communication and insecurity are the biggest offenders from top management. Horrible culture, support system. They do a terrible job at managing and fostering talent, however, they're pros at managing robots and followers. Employees who work hard become depressed and apathetic due to management's abuse and neglect. there is no accountability anywhere in the Morristown office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new top management and watch sales soar

    I have been working at New Jersey On-Line full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None that I can recall. They pay a decent base salary, but after the cost of antacids and anti-depressants you will need every day it is a wash.

    Cons

    Upper Management consists of an ineffectual fashion Diva and a duplicitous Sasquatch with a minion of no -nothing sycophants ready to do their bidding. If you enjoy meaningless benchmarks and management that are fonts of generic sales quips( good selling!) then this is the right job for you. If you enjoy watching non producing sales reps get handed large accounts and promotions, you should apply today. If you enjoy working with no talent men who believe they are the center of the universe and a gift to women then you will really get along fine in the agency role. If you like local sales, you should learn to crank out phony proposals in order to keep management happy. As long as you keep your mouth shut and nod in agreement with management you don't have to sell to keep your job. If you are a top producer with a brain, ideas or opinions you are not wanted at NJ.com

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advance Digital needs to wake up and clean house. This could be a great place to work with great people and products.

    Poor Management. Small compensation for such high demand.

    I worked at New Jersey On-Line part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Great location. You will be working with people from all fields, its good place to build connections if you are in college or a recent college graduate.

    Cons

    I worked for Advertising Art department as a graphic artist. They had really bad management and little to no art direction. Most new designers were eager to share their new ideas to the world while no one from upper management was there to listen to them. Everyone in this department was under payed. They are always hiring because people are constantly leaving. Work is rushed with makes the final product look crude and amateur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be wise if they had Art Director to work closely with the team. Increase in pay wouldn't just keep people stay longer, but it would also give them more reason to produce great work. Last but no least hearing ideas that designers share with their team and management must not be taken for granted. Some brilliant people work for this organization and they need to be heard!

    I worked at New Jersey On-Line

    Pros

    Great pay, fantastic people, editors all go for a meeting at the end of the day. Separate editorial and pagination department.

    Cons

    Not a huge amount of responsibility. Nearly impossible to advance, assignments are meh. Everyone there is overworked beyond belief. Tons of interns. All are paid though, which is great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up intern and entry-level reporter pay. Keep the fantastic people, try to get more stories on the front page of NJ.com, and do something about your sales department.
