I worked at Lee Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I got to do the type of work I enjoy and worked with some exceptional people.

Cons

Lousy hours. I missed a whole lot of family activities and my kids growing up. Very low pay, even for an industry known for low pay.

Advice to Management

Expend more resources in putting out a quality product. It will lead to better employee moral and your advertisers will be more inclined to use the newspaper to get their message out.

    Pros

    The company is full of people who really seem to care about their work - professional journalists. They are dedicated to the idea of spreading news for the good of the community knowledge. Most people truly seem to work hard every day.

    Cons

    The company doesn't (or can't) offer competitive salary to keep the high talent people they need to turn things around.
