    I have been working at Sightline Media Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Improving company culture, great and fun colleagues, digital emphasis, management cares about our markets and brands. Wave of new talent coming in without baggage from past. Generally flexible work conditions. Commitment to journalism and integrity. Optimism about future.

    Cons

    Parent company hordes cash for other acquisitions and needs to pay bills and expenses more timely. Laptops and office equipment are antiquated and broken. Most people from the TEGNA/Gannett days with negative attitudes have left but a handful cling on. There is no HR person.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in transforming the business but invest in better technology. Keep going digital and bringing in new talent. Get parent company to pay bills on time and learn the business better.

    Photojournalist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sightline Media Group (Indianapolis, IN) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was very relaxed and straight forward. Nothing awkward and no fluff. Great Manager.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was when the interviewer asked if I really wanted the job. The question came up because I have a strong background and would qualify for senior positions, but was a little desperate for an opportunity with the recent economy.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There weren't any as the salary was decided by HR.
