    People are nice, but management is

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Secaucus, NJ

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsManagement 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dead end career, full of frustration, dishonesty and horrible ethics

    Sales (Current Employee) Morristown, NJ

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

    ConsCommunication 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 Senior ManagementHire new top management and watch sales soar

    A Ship without a Rudder in Morristown

    Sales (Current Employee) Morristown, NJ

    ProsNone 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor Management. Small compensation for such high demand.

    Graphic Artist (Former Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsI 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 Senior ManagementIt 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!

    Not terrible, not great

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Jersey City, NJ

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

    ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementKeep 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
