I worked at Milwaukee Journal Sentinel full-time (More than 3 years)
Employees/co-workers are, for the most part, dedicated and team-oriented to their own internal teams. Most middle managers and directors are working managers.
Teams/departments were very silo'd. Many, many good people have left, especially over the last year. In particular, the culture is challenged. Employees are overworked, under-paid, and under-appreciated by management. It's an incredibly top-down management style, with a lot of "mandates" coming from above and no consideration to how it will effect hourly or middle management workers. This includes drastic cuts to team sizes with no plan in place to handle the workload. An employee survey was done in summer 2013 with horrible results (everywhere except newsroom). Results weren't released to employees until spring 2014, with zero follow-up done in the year following. Great example of how to completely demoralize your employees.
Advice to Management
Listen to your employees. Put some time, effort, and dollars into developing your employees to increase culture positivity and loyalty. Allow for additional training. Give some love (via compensation and additional team members) to support teams to help them perform well instead of burning them out.
