    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at GateHouse Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A good starting point for journalism and entry into the business
    Knowledgeable editors
    Decent work-life balance
    Variety of different stories to work on

    Cons

    Low pay
    No raises
    Even on weeks of loaded coverage, approved overtime requires moving of Heaven and Earth
    The company is $1.2 billion in debt (which accounts for those first three cons)
    Way behind the 21st-century technology curve in news reporting

    Advice to Management

    Approve raises for the lifeblood of your company, the hard-working reporters, photographers and editors who bust their asses every day and week to put out the publications that keep the business going. Instead of for the exalted senior management getting bonuses in the six figures on the backs of the little people's efforts.
