    I worked at Bay Area News Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Base salary for Account Execs are good. Compensation is good. Very up to date with the tools they provide you to prospect and create presentations. Lots of templates. Coworkers were great. Learned a lot about digital ads and SEM/SEO. Great brand recognition and support group.

    Cons

    Management is very impatient. They have soooo many products and services to offer and they expect you to learn and come up with solutions for clients immediately. They micro manage. Lots of politics involved. Company was transitioning from paper to digital so lots of new services were introduced. Training was thorough but they mix up the roles in the training so you learn a lot of things you tend to not use after.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Bay Area News Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    One of the last real newspapers in the Bay Area

    Cons

    Don't expect a raise and don't expect anyone to ever thank you for what you do, especially when dealing with editors in San Jose.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like numbers. Occasionally ask yourself why you got into journalism.
