Featured Review

Current Employee - Sales Executive

I have been working at McClatchy full-time for less than a year

Pros

I have two on the best bosses I could ask for. Both my Regional Director and DOS are great leaders; friendly, caring, helpful and humble. I work remote which is extremely convenient. More... companies should adopt this structure. I’ve worked for big media companies that were super strict on missing days in the office. McClatchy knows people are more productive when they are grateful and comfortable. Also offering sales training that was better than my previous training trips.

Cons

Still making the shirt to digital. Some bumps in the road in the first few weeks of account transfers but other than that pretty good.

Advice to Management

Make communication during account transitions more fluid between both reps and MCs.

Current Employee - Sales Manager

I have been working at The Charlotte Observer full-time for less than a year

Pros

The Charlotte Observer has been known as a traditional print media company, but no longer. I was so impressed with the digital offerings of this world-class organization that I had to join them!

Cons

The days go by too fast!

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work on developing the team!
