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

    Pros

    Great colleagues, people work together.

    Cons

    Building is way outdated, no windows with light.

    "Dull, insipid newspaper with no sense of newsworthiness"

    Pros

    There are a handful of people who will make great friends and mentors.

    With the Adelson buy-out, there's more money for the paper to invest in different departments, including video.

    Cons

    The RJ is in shambles--literally and figuratively. There are no windows in the newsroom and the sign outside is deteriorating. Take a look at the actual paper and you'll find the same lackluster design and boring stories about bureaucracy day after day. Absolutely no sense of newsworthiness, integrity or what makes journalism exciting. The reporters tend to play it safe because the editorial board is incompetent and uninspired. Op-eds are crudely written and display the kind of analysis that might suit a 13-year-old taking cues from a bigoted uncle. (Check out Wayne Allyn Root's Twitter account if you need to get an idea of the conspiratorial nonsense the RJ seems to tolerate so long as it flatters the GOP.) Nearly every aspect of the paper feels drab, virulently anti-intellectual and primitive.

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

    Pros

    -Medical benefits.
    -Pay is decent.
    -Motivated director.

    Cons

    Fail to evolve...super late to the digital party!
    Sales people still push print only because they are to incompetent to learn digital.
    Digital team is a joke and doesn't know how to execute simple page take overs or display campaigns.

    1970s furniture. Very dirty building

    Lots of gossip and back stabbing.

    Advice to Management

    Have your advertising department learn digital or send the to the call center and take phone orders...

    I have been working at Las Vegas Review Journal full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The general staff are hard workers in an industry that is struggling. A previously happy and dedicated staff.

    Cons

    The current Publisher that has been there for only a year is an awful person. He is very demoralizing and has ZERO respect for the staff. Clearly he doesn't realize how negatively that affects productivity.

    Advice to Management

    More advice to Mr. Adelson than Management. Lose the vulture otherwise known as our Publisher, and please bring in someone with blood in their veins that will motivate the staff instead of destroying your investment. You have a good group of people working there that were dedicated and work hard in a struggling industry. We are now demoralized, and almost everyone is looking for new career opportunities. So in addition to the multiple random firings, we also have several resignations as well.

    Agressive pay and commission for experience

    Pros

    fun environment in the marketing department. Events are really cool to work on.

    Cons

    After months of high praise and no indication of any wrong doing or any hint that I wasn't doing a good job, was let go with no warning (verbal or written). Several people had the same experience.

    Advice to Management

    If you are letting people go, some feedback on why they are being fired would be helpful. More than "We are an at will company, we don't have to give a reason!" How do you correct a problem, if your manager NEVER tells you that there is a problem and gives you a chance to correct it???

    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.
