    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Freedom Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Even though you do the same thing every day, it is always different because we are a daily newspaper. The work environment is friendly and not high pressure. We are more like family instead of just employees. There is a certain prestige that comes with working for the newspaper. The benefits for full time employees are decent.

    Cons

    Because we are a smaller community paper, the pay scale here is lower than it is at larger metropolitan papers. Also, there is insufficient training for new hires.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more recognition for a job well done. Also, pay raises need to be addressed a little more often.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Freedom Communications part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Media Company focused in newspaper business

    Cons

    Bad Management - new one . No sense of business and no respect for any personnels.
    They will chase pennies in the carpet where ever possible when it comes to compensate the employees and on the other side will lavishly spend on their travel/entertainment.

    Do not think of joining this organization . They will not pay the salaries and on asking will fire you from the position.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and respect your employees
