I worked at Centre Daily Times full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good employee camaraderie, access to reasonable technology, McClatchy Interactive does provide updated training on digital media for Centre Daily Times and all its other properties

Cons

Limited commission potential for sales, reduced skeleton staff makes job harder to accomplish with its overload of assigned tasks, industry is not growing or redeveloping itself fast enough to stay stable in the face of changing media environments

Advice to Management

To gain a better understanding of coaching and mentoring, along with better business practices. Lessen the "fear factor" approach of employee mentoring to dissolve the already existent toxic environment
