    Pros

    Company perks and benefits were wonderful. Excellent amount of PTO and holidays. Great 401k plan.

    Cons

    Politics. Upper management protected those they were closest to by allowing them to work a schedule that fit their needs; work on projects they wanted to work on or let them pass on a project if they had too much going on in their personal life. If you weren’t part of the clique requests were met with much resistance.

    Pros

    Advance is going through an evolution. Everyone has a voice. There's a real openness to innovation and to try new things. Collaborative environment. Beautiful office space.

    Cons

    Things are less structured, something's done in an outdated way, but there's an opportunity to create new processes.

    A great place to work...

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. Although it is a large corporation, it feels like each paper/magazine is more of a small family-owned business. Benefits are incredibly generous and they encourage you to go after the job you want, so job growth and professional development is really up to you.

    Cons

    My main complaint about this company is it is not very efficient. They seem to do things in older, less efficient ways, just because that is the way it is always done. Not very innovative.

    No job security

    Pros

    Compared to other media jobs, Advance offers relatively competitive pay and caters to some larger news markets than most community news publications. The branch that I worked for spent a lot on maintaining the company's image, which can feel pretty good.

    Cons

    The company has a great plan for saving journalism. It just changes that plan on a day-to-day basis. If they're not laying off their staff, they're hiring. There's no real job security, and the company seems willing to throw employees away without real thought to the next step.

    Wonderful and collaborative work environment with excellent people who truly care and are always helpful in providing assistance to colleagues in addition to discharging their responsibilities.
