    Pros

    Great HR team in a company looking for positive action to survive in a challenging space. Doing some exciting things to grow revenue. Are at the center of the community with proven commitment to Oklahoma City.

    Cons

    The decline of the newspaper business model. Salaries and benefits are supposedly not great, but they seem fine compared to other non oil and gas companies in Oklahoma.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are no silver bullets.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, benefits are okay.

    Cons

    Micro management hell. Sore communication, OPUBCO is a company trying salvage itself any way that it can. It really feels like a sinking ship. It is struggling to move forward but with management that are stuck in the past. It feels really stiff and old. Even with the new move they are not considering some of the nature of the business they are trying to evolve into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of some of the control. Older ways are not always better ways. Technology and todays market are not the same from even ten years ago. Let some of the younger better suited employees take some lead positions in order to help move the company in the right direction.

    Pros

    Great history, strong financial backing, tons of smart and talented people, good benefits

    Cons

    Lot of politics, very conservative and stuffy, clueless management (in certain departments, not all)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just say you are listening and want our opinion, actually listen to it and act on it. Get some younger, somewhat experienced managers in certain places that are not going to be afraid to go against the grain and allow them to do so.

    Pros

    A lot of good people there. The core structure of their news gathering and reporting will always remain because they have some of the best reporters in town.

    Cons

    Management is clearly heading down the wrong path, at least from a company survival standpoint. Much like the Warren Buffet purchases of newspaper properties, the business plan seems to be to make money on the print side of the business while you can without preparing for the eventual decline of print circulation. When the circulation numbers drop low enough and the advertisers will no longer pay the higher advertising rates, there will be a massive restructuring if not a complete sell off of the print assets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say to tell your people the truth, but then again, that wouldn't fit into your business plans, would it?
