    I have been working at Temple Daily Telegram full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There were people on the editorial staff who made the job enjoyable. Most of those people have left. The hours are somewhat flexible, meaning most people can work the 10-7 instead of 8-5. The office is located downtown near some bars and restaurants, which is nice.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible for pretty much everyone despite the fact that the paper uses a paywall online. Overtime is disallowed or restricted. Raises are not-existent and you will have to work most holidays. There is no opportunity to innovate because of a lack of resources and talent. The leadership seems to have no idea how the paper is going to remain profitable in the future.

    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.
