    I worked at Paddock Publications full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is a family atmosphere at this family owned company. You feel part of a team and that vibe can be inspiring and contagious.

    Cons

    The dress code is fairly strict to the point of being ridiculous. The contracting newspaper industry makes working for a newspaper company stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Relax the dress code. Do something about the lack of 401k contribution. Kudos on the efforts to build morale even as the industry faces more and more challenges.
