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

Pros

as a graphic designer, the ability to work a flexible schedule with the deadlines and with my team was a great environment.

Cons

the TIGHT Budget crisis that sent our work over seas to be outsources but demanding more from us with less bodies.

Advice to Management

Micromanaging the employees after excepting them to know every aspect of every ones job.

    Pros

    For size of city, downtown Charlotte is relatively livable. Affordable housing nearby, and good transportation options. (But suburbs can have nightmare traffic.) Project were enjoyable and supported. Colleagues were collegial. Good fit for a young professional.

    Cons

    I wasn't fired personally, but firings were frequent and seemingly arbitrary -- often coming as RIF percentages from corporate. It all contributed to an atmosphere of fear.
