Pros

Good benefits and the people that are left are very hard working people. Of course you have to be to take on all the added responsibilities.

Cons

The company is always downsizing or taken from the employees such as increased costs of health coverage, pay cuts, furloughs, increased workload with no added benefits (except be happy you have a job). Even though you may have a vacation balance, its difficult to use it when there is no one to cover, therefore losing any vacation at the end of the year. Perhaps, if they cant get their employees their vacation time, they should at least pay them for what they lose.

Advice to Management

Present a case to McClatchy and show how the Eagle has done more with less compared to some of their sister newspapers. Enough said. I dont want to kick a company when they're down.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Company Car and Gas Card, Office at Home

    Cons

    Worked 80+ hrs week. No OT Pay, Salary only. Standard was always higher, never good enough. I was promised weekends and holidays off, etc and assured that my district was in good shape. I had a health crisis and communication between middle management about my absence was lacking, leaving me to explain when I returned. Little to no support from my managers and very little control over my territory.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes good enough is good enough.
