    Pros

    Insurance is no so bad, but its getting worse.

    Cons

    Only they know is to cut the cost. They don't have ability to explore new markets. In addition,the company doesn't have any idea to manage a business. Though the newspaper still get profits every year, it is declining. And the boss greedily squeeze more money from the employees.

    Pros

    Fairly good health insurance plan (though in deterioration for years), amicable working environment.

    Cons

    As a US-based ethnic news media struggling with the downturn, World Journal is increasingly courting Communist China and adopting an apologist mentality, which calls into serious ethics problem. Its outsourcing practice (to China and Taiwan) not only harms US workers, but also aggravates its bias against the nation called America.

    Advice to Management

    Respect truth, respect your reader, hence your circulation will grow and bottom line improve. You cannot hedge on Beijing regime's money laundering machine by being their propaganda apparatus. The end of the day, only a stronger America is your savior.
