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.

Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

I worked at The Sacramento Bee

Pros

Sacramento Bee really cares about the interns. They host weekly lunches with journalists and McClatchy execs with free lunch. It's also in a nice place. The editors who are still left are really good... people

Cons

Lots of people were being laid off when I was there, and morale is probably not on the upswing. Pay was not great, but then again, it's a journalism internship.

Advice to Management

Update the SacBee site so it doesn't look like it was made in 2003.
