    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Austin American-Statesman as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, easy access to downtown, a lot of opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Too many reorganizations at the employee's expenses. Non-fulfillment of promises made and no regard for employees and their well-being.

    Advice to Management

    Cox Media needs to get heavily involved in what is going on at the Statesman. The Statesman produces a fantastic product, unfortunately, it's being tarnished by upper management.
