    I worked at San Diego Union-Tribune full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent brand. Many great people. Top leadership was very effective - when the meddling, mis-guided absentee owner let them run the company.

    Cons

    Doug did a lot of damage to the company in a short period of time. Credibility suffered.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let Chicago - or Los Angeles - tell you what San Diego citizens want.
