    I have been working at The Hamilton Spectator full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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

    Recommends

    I worked at The Hamilton Spectator full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Old 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.
