Cons

management, management. Web management is problematic. Lots of tension between the "print" and "web" world. Too much of a divide and anxiety.
Division of work is a problem. Web producers are expected to put in 50hours of work before they file overtime. It isn't stated but it is understood. They need more staff and better coverage.

Advice to Management

Restructuring is needed but further more, honest discussions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great product, brand name and reputation. Looks nice on the resume. Good mix of people - old timers, newspaper vets, new media folks.

    Cons

    The company has been struggling of late and has instituted far-reaching salary cuts (or furloughs) and layoffs. Job security and career advancement are not guaranteed at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and forthcoming - employees should not be kept in the dark about upcoming changes. Be more flexible.
