    I worked at Pacific Sun full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of design freedom, and many other special projects aside from the weekly edition.

    Cons

    New management completely out of touch with the product, the county and all of the staff.

    Get new management. Start over.

    Pros

    Really great people. Everyone supportive of everyone else in this small media company. No office politics...everyone focused on the work itself. Like a family.

    Cons

    Low salary when there is a salary. Sales reps work on commission only. No benefits. Expenses not reimbursed. The paper has lost its way editorially. Slowly dying paper.

    Advice to Management

    Find an investor to put money into the business rather than continually cutting back. Find a strong publisher who understands the business and who forms relationships in the community.
