I worked at Lee Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

There are a lot of good people throughout the company who work hard and care about producing great work every day.

Cons

When I left the company, corporate debt and budget cuts had forced furloughs, salary freezes and brought on universal low morale. Most managers appear to be working hard just to get by with thinner staffs, smaller news holes and burned out employees.

Advice to Management

More innovation and creative thinking, and less micro-management.
