    Pros

    Employees are nice. Good benefits. Lots of room to do your own thing. Products are decent to sell. Great team.

    Don't set the budget so high.

    Telling stories of life in our large community. Going to work with good people and never knowing what will happen next.

    Unable to keep up with a rapidly changing industry. It has proven difficult to maintain pace with a coveted demographic and the ever changing and unpredictable world of social media where most people rely for their news.
