I worked at A. H. Belo full-time (More than 5 years)
Well-established company with many connections, they are growing their product portfolio and diversifying revenue.
Lack of communication between departments and products, constant rounds of layoffs, lack of stability with the newspaper revenue. Everything that is done is done to keep the paper alive, and that's a negative because several important divisions get forgotten.
Advice to Management
Communication. There needs to be a more consistent message across management. One second we were told everything is great and on the rise, next thing people are getting laid off and other positions are opening. It's confusing.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at A. H. Belo.
I was referred to the position via an external recruiter. I met with the IT and Finance VPs in one day and had an offer within a week.
I appreciated their efficiency in setting up and conducting the interview as well as the speed with which they made an offer.
