    I have been working at News & Record full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Health insurance, can be flexible at times, especially in sales. People that are left here are hard working and trying to make the best of a dying industry.

    Cons

    If considering a job here, think of it as a temporary means to learn as much as possible with a plan to move on to something stable and progressive. Due to the severe decline in subscribers (they are cancelling in mass numbers due to ridiculous rates, lack of reliable delivery from the carrier force and people that don't want to pay to receive printed news any longer) ,decline in print advertising revenue and management...

    Advice to Management

    Needs new management that leads with integrity and positivity as well as a management team that is not still operating like it's the 1980's.

    I worked at News & Record full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people at the News & Record are awesome - it has a team environment within the teams. The company does offer a good benefits program, 401K, etc.

    Cons

    The industry is declining and therefore looking at ways to remain profitable. BH Media now owns the company and everything seems to be about profits. This can often cause tension & stress within the environment.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to balance employee moralel with company profits. It is hard to be productive in a declining industry that micro manages
