    Former Employee - Photo Editor in Providence, RI

    I worked at Providence Journal full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Happy staff, good pay, a bargaining unit that did not reward laziness. People worked hard because they loved the work, period. There is nothing more exciting than working at a newspaper or media outlet. There is always something to deliver to the readers, good or bad. And there was a lot of pride. Not sure how it is now, but I wouldn't go back hearing what I've heard.

    Cons

    Fear of layoff. I mean how many (local) people does it take to run a newspaper? I wonder how low they can go with so many rounds of downsizing. And other than older people, who reads it any longer? It's not going to improve either, I think we all know that. If I were young and working there, I'd be on the job boards right now.

    Advice to Management

    Some are effective and some are just not. It doesn't matter what you say, they are just holding onto their seats for dear life... until the next 'downsizing'. My advice is to take the buyout next time.
