    I worked at Denver Newspaper Agency full-time

    Pros

    Fine company with great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Constantly downsizing as Newspaper Industry contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting to save professional news gathering alive in our country. We need it more than ever.

    Pros

    I worked by myself, it's also a good job if you just need some extra money to help you get by.

    Cons

    I started with doing one route but once people started to quit I ended up doing 4 routes and they never have me a contract for the extra three routes until I turned in my notice, so I never received tips or bonuses off of those three routes and they could never keep track of the routes I did. I could go from 3 routes to 4 routes and my paycheck wouldn't change because they'd forget what routes I did. I don't mind doing 1 or 2 routes with no days off but doing 4 routes takes 5-8 hours a day with no days off and this was only a secondary job for me.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees or they'll leave. When 5 people quit in one week, it's because of management, not the job.

    I worked at Denver Newspaper Agency (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great name recognition and products.

    Cons

    Too little too late. Bad taste in advertisers mouth in the market after the merger of the two papers and bad business decisions lead to a mass exodus of employees and layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop beating up sales reps and recognize their struggles.

    Freedom to do your work with little supervision.

    Pros

    Ability to move up in the company if you work hard and deliver results. Have a high level of autonomy.

    Cons

    General industry issues. Majority of the staff unionized and appeared to have a sense of entitlement. Training was minimal at best.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus on digital assets and eliminate the union. Focus on strict performance management, training and development of employees.

    Pros

    The building is new. The location is perfect - downtown on major cross streets. The view is incredible - the Capitol, mountains, downtown. We have a gym on the first floor with all the accommodations - treadmills, elliptical trainers, weights and weight machines, all free. Showers/locker room. The pay is above average.

    Cons

    We are on a pay scale - unionized - good and bad. Once you reach top of pay scale you hit the ceiling and will never make more besides measly 1.0% yearly raise. The interactive department needs more focus.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower echelon and pool ideas together.
