Pros

Good benefits, decent co-workers, free parking, community newspapers may have a future in a dying industry, open to feedback from employees

Managers are busy bodies who gossip and pit employees against each other, poor pay, inadequate training and development for new employees.

Advice to Management

Pay experienced people more, spend a little money to make money by promoting the papers in the community, hire experienced newspaper managers

    I worked at Houston Community Newspapers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Writing for a community paper and managing it can be a lot of fun. The communities are great and a wonderful chance for cub reporters to get experience.

    Cons

    Overall company management is lacking when it comes to resources to make the vision happen. Also, furloughs as a way to keep things on the up and up destroys work morale.
