    A great place for a career in advertising

    ProsThe Spectator is the most respected news source in Hamilton and is part of a much larger corporation, Torstar. Excellent employees, lots of training available, and also lots of opportunity for advancement.

    ConsThere is a high stress level due to constant deadlines, sales targets, and dealing with an increasing workload due to cutbacks and a depressed economy.

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

    ProsCamaraderie; location; reputation; awesome cafeteria; community interest - community and staff initiatives; pay and benefits. Overall a good place to work, some very long service employees.

    ConsOld offices; mostly good managers, but could use more management skills; long service employees and fairly flat management structure make career advancement within the company difficult.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
