Pros

The health insurance.
Owned by the same family for many generations.
Very honest. They do not lie to you.
Corporate management is very good.

Cons

The local general managers have much autonomy, which can cause problems if he/she is not totally competent.
Some outside consultants are so relied on that they are virtually acting as the general manager and maybe even a department manager.
Many employees are in management positions just because they have been there a long time.

Advice to Management

To local managers--do not depend on an outside consultant as an all-knowing savior. No person is 100% correct all the time. They have their own agendas, and those agendas may not be the same as yours. Have the guts to make your own decisions.

    I worked at Schurz Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I liked most the people I worked with: ) I also enjoyed the three-weeks paid vacation available right away at prorated for the calendar year in which you start!!!!!

    Cons

    Poor upper management, expectations and monthly sales goals are not realistic, the sales reps do not make their goals most months because of unreasonable demands for the newspaper industry...

    Pay higher wages to your Sales Reps and I promise you will have much less turnover, HIGHER SALES and better PROFITS!
