    The worst job I've EVER had

    Current Employee - Sales in West Palm Beach, FL

    I have been working at Palm Beach Post full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, view from my desk, some co-workers. (I don't even have 20 words of praise to write) Get the online version of the paper for free, received an I-Pod shuffle for Christmas! Just received a 2% raise after being here for almost 3 years!

    Cons

    Where do I start? People are promoted not because they're qualified, but whether or not they are in the right 'clique'. Middle & upper management have NO clue what's going on in the trenches (we grunts pay their fat salaries) Micro-managers create a HORRIBLE work environment-Upper management is always singing the blues (financially) yet they find the $$ to upgrade software & phone systems that cost millions of dollars when the old systems worked just fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions & new hires need to be the most qualified person for the job-not someone's relative, friend, based on how someone looks or what they do outside of work. Many talented people have been laid off, fired or replaced with incompetents. Some middle managers have NO clue what they're doing, nor are they qualified to lead. Management needs to make a path for current employees to advance if they so desire.

    Pros

    Nice office space. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Cliques among employees. Layoffs are always in the back of your mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A performance review should not be the first time an employee hears about issues.

    Once was America's best mid-sized newspaper, now it's just hanging on...

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in West Palm Beach, FL

    I worked at Palm Beach Post

    Pros

    Generally, management respects work-life balance. And the paper is still capable of occasional good things editorially. Community is a good place to live, too.

    Cons

    Hey, all newspaper have had it rough. But the Post lost its way -- in the quality of the writing, in the care it showed for the community -- more than most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more. And cool it with the layoffs.

    Great benefits, decent pay, company is getting better and culture is (finally!) becoming progressive.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in West Palm Beach, FL

    I have been working at Palm Beach Post

    Pros

    Majority of staff are decent, caring people. There is a big push to turn the culture around, and it's happening. Pay is competitive for the industry, and the benefits are very good.Good access to free online learning.

    Cons

    Newspaper industry is in turmoil, and it shows at The Post. There is a lot of uncertainty; once you think the layoffs are done, they start all over again. MUCH of Sales and middle management is incompetent at best; many long-term employees are complacent and entitled and the editorial people (ie: J School ) have still not accepted the reality that advertising pays their salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the progressive good work; use the impending restructuring to get it right this time! Do a better job at not just recognizing talent and initiative; reward it. Put senior leadership and line employees in a room together once a month, see what happens! Middle management is muddling the message!
