Pros

Relaxed atmosphere, the wearing of jeans daily is encouraged. People are friendly and engaging. Facilities are nice with an included cafeteria serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Cons

My only disappointment is in the downsizing being experienced with all newspaper publishing firms. My department is being dissolved and the work being sent to an affiliated in another state. The downside is the state of the industry rather than the employer itself.

Advice to Management

Talk to your employees down the scale. Feedback by the lower echelon can be quite informative. I really wished upper management asked me about a few key situations.

    Women are rarely promoted to VP positions

    Upper Management is not hands on and has no idea the unethical means that are being taken by middle management to make budgets

    Get involved in day to day operations. Go on calls and find out what clients need and expect from their media partners. Mentor.
