    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at BH Media Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Your co-workers are amazing. The company picks talented people. They just don't pay them what they're worth.

    Cons

    Terrible pay and little company pro-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    You're good at teaching and finding talent, but you're not invested in keeping it. You've become more an internship who prepares good workers for your competition who pay more.

    I worked at BH Media Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits and lots of freedom and encouragement from peers and management. Pretty flexible schedules, particularly with PTO days and such.

    Cons

    Upper management at the paper was limited by corporate. Corporate sets unrealistic expectations and does not understand the individual needs of each of its properties. Horrible pay and BH is very particular about overtime. As a reporter, I was paid hourly. For a portion of the time I worked at BH Media property, the paper was short staffed. It was nearly impossible to avoid overtime, but staff members often were reprimanded...

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and understand the way the industry is changing. Employees must feel like there is room to grow or else they are not likely to stay. Place a larger emphasis on digital but understand that these numbers can be subjective.

    I worked at BH Media Group

    Pros

    Good for those just starting out, as long as you avoid burnout. You can live on the salary.

    Cons

    Upper management is incompetent and does not care about quality. Upper managers often do not have experience in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Actually edit the newspaper and provide direction for employees.

    I have been working at BH Media Group

    Pros

    Interesting work, nice coworkers, that's really it.

    Cons

    Horrible work-life balance. Expected to be "on call" 24/7 but never paid more than 40 hrs. Managers do not listen. Crap pay with not even a cost of living raise. No bonuses even though we exceeded goals. Seriously, horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees. You wonder why turnover is so high? It's because you create a horrible work environment and pay your employees beans!
