    Pros

    Some supervisors are good, hours are reasonable, there are some smart, hardworking people, most people have at least one weekend day off

    Cons

    Furloughs, freeze on vacation accrual -- it's not a company with a lot of resources or ways to reward employees. Computer systems are horrible. Upper management provides no direction or recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees what's happening and how you're working to improve our position -- then actually do it. Find a way to reward your best employees.


  2. "I enjoyed my job very much."

    Pros

    It was a great job for a long time. I was busy everyday and learned a lot about the business. I felt a great sense of accomplishment.

    Cons

    Morale is often low due to continuous staff cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting the staff. Build the newspaper up instead of tearing it down.
