I worked at Lee Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Always had the best interest of the employees

Cons

Moved too slowly and cautiously - changes in the industry were reacted too and not anticipated, no creativity in problem solving for new revenue models and opportunities

Advice to Management

Open your eyes and try some crazy things that will take you out of the established way of operating.

    I have been working at Lee Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong community ties, loyal readership, commitment to accuracy, wins awards every year, and the staff cares about their work and each other. Good health benefits & 401K.

    Cons

    Not everyone who leaves is replaced, and those who are replaced aren't replaced very quickly. No raises in years.

    Advice to Management

    Raises would lift morale and make it easier to hire quality staff that will stay longer. Hire an assistant city editor.
