    I worked at Las Vegas Review Journal full-time

    Pros

    The staff. Hardest working sales staff ever. Met some lifelong friends. It used to be a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    The new management team Adelson brought in has decimated a once positive, good paying career into a circus of low morale, back-stabbing and unreachable goals so they don't have to pay you commission.

    Advice to Management

    If you were there prior to the new team, find something else as soon as possible.

    I worked at Las Vegas Review Journal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are cheaper than most companies. That's about the only plus.

    Cons

    You name it... The place is a complete joke! Flip a coin ,that will be the direction of the day. Zero transparency, Zero accountability, Zero Communication and Zero Leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, they do not listen to advice or constructive criticism. If they did , they wouldn't be losing great employees left & right.

    Pros

    Amazing people within the department: sales people, support staff, front line managers. Was once a great place to work.

    Cons

    New management team doesn't have a clue. Their management style appears to be avoid and blame. Goal setting has gotten ridiculous: they do not want you to make a commission. New leader is out of her league and just awful. Anyone who is a threat gets pushed out and best people have left or are leaving. Ridiculous place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Set some priorities. Accomplish something you say you are going to. Set expectations more realistically. Replace department leader. She has destroyed it.

    I worked at Las Vegas Review Journal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is above average for journalism and the cost of living in Las Vegas is reasonable. The newsroom is full of excellent reporters who are trying to do journalism right, despite obstacles put in their way by poor management.

    Cons

    The newsroom is managed by billionaire owner Sheldon Adelson's minions, not real journalists. They've fired several reporters and editors who refused to spin the truth.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't have the journalistic integrity to report the truth and stand up to the rich and powerful, get a PR job. The pay and hours are better anyway.

    I have been working at Las Vegas Review Journal full-time

    Pros

    * I've met some of the nicest people in journalism at the RJ

    * It used to feel like a real family

    Cons

    * Since Adelson and his two armed bandits took over, journalistic integrity has gone clean out the window and its bones are bleaching in the desert sun. His band of cronies expect everybody to fall in line, each and every time they pull the lever.

    * Checks may be on time and never bounce, but it feels like taking blood money

    Advice to Management

    You had a highly qualified team of experienced and friendly professionals, if you ever get it back don't throw it away again!

    Pros

    Was one of the good companies to work for till Stephens owned it. Went down the hill when gatehouse took over. Adelson will be a better owner as he is known for his great behavior to the employees.

    Cons

    Executives are not able to carry on the same good image for the company. Looking for short term gains to cling on to their job.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people well. Don't fire anyone just because you don't like him or her.

    Pros

    Sales environment was positive and they compensated well for good performance. Well know company around town. They hire exceptional executives that help to inspire and motivate

    Cons

    Lack research data and resources necessary to make a thoughtful sale. A little behind the times. But I think that is all changing with the new ownership

    Advice to Management

    Better communication to all teams
