    I worked at New Haven Register part-time

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, some fabulous co-workers.

    Cons

    Sub-industry pay, long hours, little recognition for efforts, inflated performance expectations with no management support to achieve them. "Little fiefdoms" mentality where different departments stalled the works of others. (Maybe in the absence of strong leadership to correct this they outsourced almost everything.) Upper management more invested in keeping their jobs then seeing the big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and listen to them.

    Pros

    not many since the newspaper is dying and they don't know how to correctly manage the digital age

    Cons

    Over worked environment where management has a huge ego and people are in and out all the time. I've never seen so much turnover in a company! I was in outside sales.

    Advice to Management

    Be more on a team and value your employees!

    Pros

    Good group of people, great place to learn the journalism craft. New Haven is a great town to be a writer.

    Cons

    Low pay, not enough writers, editors who have been there for many many years so few opportunities for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more money and hire more journalists.
