Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Digital First Media full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very Supportive folks to work with despite all the churn and chaos caused by mgmt

Cons

Poor communication up, down and across the board resulting in conflicting directives

Advice to Management

Don't listen only to what you want to hear. New POD structure is NOT working. Once the folks who are making you look good leave, your ineptitude will become obvious. Listen to the ones who actually know what they are doing.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, vibe within Denver office is good and productive

    Cons

    The newspaper industry is dealing with a lot of change and shrinking revenues. This can make for a lot of changes in the work place. Budgets fluctuate and directions change quarterly.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with personnel and business changes before they happen


  2. "Disjointed and Unorganized"

    I worked at Digital First Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for a team with a phenomenal manager who was awesome at managing up as well as down.

    Cons

    The Detroit based section of the company I worked for was as unstable as any company can be. I believed they were in a transition and heading in a positive direction, but it didn't take long to figure out they were floundering; being pulled in too many directions... kind of felt like a multi-headed beast.
