    I have been working at Omaha World-Herald full-time

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule, decent benefits, great resume builder, paid time off, etc. It's a friendly atmosphere and there are reward ceremonies for sales execs. You see the CEO at many of these, which is rare for large companies.

    Cons

    The goals are increasing from the month before from 4-15%. These goals become very difficult to obtain because you max out your territory. You end up just selling to sell, and losing sight of what is best for the customer. There can be too many tiers within the company. No room for growth.

    I worked at Omaha World-Herald

    Pros

    Mostly friendly corporate culture. You work with people you can go to lunch with. It's a good place to be FROM.

    Cons

    Men rule, women drool. Non-equal pay for equal work. Men are prized in this bigoted atmosphere. Pay is incredibly low at all levels but that is probably true for other newspapers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally.

    I worked at Omaha World-Herald part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The peace & quite of early morning and if you're lucky a free newspaper

    Cons

    Bad hours, unsympathetic management, Amount paid is sad for amount of work,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone gets injured on the job asking them to finish their job BEFORE seeking medical attention is not a way to win points w/ employees.
