Be a hunter

Digital Account Executive (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at Scripps full-time for more than a year

Proscompany culture, benefits, great people to work with, digital is growing yet experiencing growing pains.

ConsYou are not given any accounts to start with. Sales quota are unreasonable. For digital Scripps has been to cavalier in their approach nothing sets us apart from the competition. Digital can be a hard sell. If you are not a hunter this job is not for you. Lots of traveling no payback for gas.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe reasonable, Have a funnel of leads for the DAE to start with

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The direction is unknown, like Captain Jack Sparrow's compass.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Scripps full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe people are what makes working here great!

ConsHubbing at the television stations and workforce slashing.

Advice to Senior ManagementA happy employee is a productive employee. Don't forget how you got successful! Hint, it was the employees you slashed! It can be fixed, show employees that you really care. The employees do care.

Long Hours with Minimal Pay.

Graphic Designer (Former Employee)
Wichita Falls, TX

I worked at Scripps full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWorked with a lot of good people.

ConsMost of the creative content is being contracted out to a company based in INDIA with whom speak very little english if any. Upper management has no clue of the physical process it takes to get the content press-ready. No incentives for production employees, only for SALES reps. Reps aren't held to deadlines therefore designers are expected to stay however late to finish ads that are turned in late. The list goes on and on.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to LISTEN to the employees that are responsible for the actual production of the newspaper. Look in the areas that matter in order to save money. Ex: quality checks that will prevent so many wasted digital plates. Uphold deadlines to prevent sloppy mistakes and dissatisfied customers. Stop throwing company parties and giving away "stuff" and start giving your employees an annual bonus!!

Could be very good

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Scripps part-time

ProsPeople are passionate about what they do, if they're where they want to be. Everyone is generally good to work with and easy to communicate to. Lots of benefits and opportunities to grow, great environment.

ConsNo clear steps to promotion or upward mobility. Company seems to want to spend a lot of money in many areas including hot shot new hires instead of training and compensating current employees

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease make sure there is a training manual in all departments, all the new hires seem to not know what to do or what's expected of them and current employees just stare in disappointment not knowing clear boundaries or the intervention they should take when it's clearly the supervisors responsibility to develop a training program. All news stations want to be number one but that won't happen when things aren't changing for everybody. Things seem stagnant and you lose talented people.

Horrible Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Tulsa, OK

I worked at Scripps full-time

ProsYou get experience in this industry, promotions are given.

ConsThere are terrible hours, irregular shifts, no respect for when you've asked off, often on call, and sometimes no breaks are given. The management treats their employees very badly and there is no praise given and constant criticism, including blaming employees for things out of their control or that management did wrong. People quit all the time. Managers don't listen to the needs of their employees. Avoid working here!!!!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementYou either need to gracefully step away so that managers with good skill sets can take over and save the ever decreasing talent pool, or you need to do a complete change so that your employees aren't miserable.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
