Former Employee - Advertising Sales Consultant

I worked at The News Tribune full-time for more than a year

Pros

Sometimes change is painful and comes slowly. What matters most is the commitment of senior management to implement change and to see it through. That is what I've seen from this team in the 8 months.... If that weren't the case I wouldn't be a customer today. The News Tribune is a talented team of people that are working hard to change with the times. They have taken the feedback of both previous and current employees to heart. There is a new Vice President in town that clearly balances the needs of the company with the needs of the client. The TNT, and parent company McClatchy, has a clear path forward and the team is working hard to make that a reality. The product they sell is world class, which is why I came back as a customer. There have certainly been bumps along the way in what is almost like a startup environment shifting from the old days of newspaper to the new digital landscape. However bumps along the way develops expertise through trial and error. This is a great place to learn, grow, and contribute fresh ideas to an industry in need of that. This review follows a much different tone than a previous review I left. To me, that is proof of hard work and the desire to come out on the top.

Cons

You will work hard. In the end you have contributed to something greater than just a job. Is that really a con?

Advice to Management

Keep up the change. Keep doing what you have done for the past 8 months. I'm sorry our partnership didn't last longer but you're definitely on the right path. Don't forget "design thinking".... Create the products, programs, and processes your customers are telling you they want. Not what you think they want. If you keep doing that (which it seems you are) you will win in the end! The last piece of advice is related to commission. I'm making a bit of an assumption as I'm gone, but get more creative and aggressive. Pay far more upfront to close, and pay residual for retained customers. That model will do you and customers a big favor.
