    I worked at The Star-Ledger (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At the Star-Leger, you'll work with good colleagues, find encouraging supervisors, and have access to several continuing education opportunities. The newspaper had a good journalistic reputation, having won several Pulitzer Prizes. Working at the Star-Ledger will deliver a somewhat better experience than working at other regional newspapers with a similar scope.

    Cons

    There is little opportunity for advancement within the company. It's best to leave and then return after getting some experience elsewhere if you want to advance. The whole print journalism industry is in danger of failing, and the Star-Ledger is no exception. While the pay there was once considered very good, like many newspapers, the Star-Ledger instituted salary freezes, mass layoffs and other austerity measures that might have been good for the bottom line, but were terrible for employees.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for senior management, as I am sure they have already learned from their many, many mistakes.
