    Pros

    Fantastic work environment and work culture provided by Cox Media Group. Not the Palm Beach Post. ( CMG owns the Post) Palm Beach Post is swimming against the current. Thinking News Papers are headed for a comeback rather than extinction. " Extra ... Extra ...Get your copies before they run out"

    Cons

    Its going to disappear soon. In major cities in America News papers are a dying or extinct breed nothing cant stop it no matter what each Market does. Its was a great product but times have changed, people don't read NewsPapers anymore. People just sign up to get the coupons. No one cares about the News, cause its free on: the internet with sites like Bing,yahoo etc... Even their Palm Beach Post Site is free. So unless you want to work for a company that will disappear any day.
    I suggest you work somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Cash in your 401 K's and retirement plans before you get surprised with a chapter 11

    Pros

    Nice area if you like the Florida lifestyle.

    Cons

    Clueless management, very clique-y environment.

    Advice to Management

    I think it's too late for them to start listening. Paper/site may not be around in a few years.

    Pros

    Management is supportive and friendly. They're also invested in your growth and give you opportunities for success.

    At the time, there could have been more transparency about structural changes within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be open and honest with employees.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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