    Pros

    This is a small, family-owned paper, and all that comes with it. The plus side is there is plenty of room for advancement for ambitious reporters. Just don't hang on too long. The proximity to Austin, and even Houston and Dallas make it a terrific spot for someone wanting to get a diverse taste of Texas.

    Cons

    Low pay (all journalists). They aren't doing much to push the envelope. And the management is stuck in a bygone era. The entire paper -- even the buidling -- could use an update. Unfortunately, they aren't much for investing in the company or its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Update the publication from print to web. Also, diversify the delivery method of web products to drive more readers to the site and increase social media engagement.

    Pros

    Nice people, relaxed atmosphere if you just want a “day job” with no real stress.

    Cons

    Not so sure the newspaper can stay in business bc management does not seem focused on growth or interested in making decisions to bring the company in to the 21st century. Old farts in upper management are anchors to growth and creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Retire. Focus on growth. You’ve got some talent, on staff, whom you should listen to. Also, exhausting your new, passionate employees with no vacation for one-year is just bad for business. Allow employees with passion and creativity to steer the ship...the old way isn’t working. Your bad decisions are putting employees at risk of loosing jobs and the community at risk of loosing a valuable resource.
