    Pros

    Freedom to cover topics of choice without limitations as long as other work is completed in an appropriate manner and topics are related to industry.

    Cons

    Not many downsides but as the publications industry tends to run, salary never seems to be a particularly strong point.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for freedom of staff to report on things that are both important to themselves and their interests. This will present better work results on required content.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, reasonable schedules, generous Paid Time Off. Good opportunities for internships and young journalists.

    Crain Communications management needs to continue pursuing new media and web 2.0 opportunities, because new media is the future of the news business.
