    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Shaw Suburban Media full-time

    Pros

    Fast-moving media company, commitment to growth.

    Cons

    Expense savings measures prevent reaching company goals. Creativity and innovation is quashed because more is being done with less.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the value of the work being done before deciding on expense savings measures.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Shaw Suburban Media full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This is a great place to practice journalism in the multimedia era. The company is progressive and has changed with the times. The remaining middle management and editorial staff is hard-working and truly dedicated to putting out the highest possible quality product every day despite increasingly diminished resources. Employees work hard, but constantly grow and learn. A team attitude prevails.

    Cons

    Like many in this industry, Shaw has implemented multiple layoffs in recent years, making the workload significantly greater on those who remain. Compensation not only has not kept pace with the increased workload expectations, it is stagnant at best. The institutional knowledge of many key veteran employees has been lost.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to better compensate, appreciate, and thus retain, the editorial employees who consistently work far more diligently than their pay checks would suggest. Re-invest in training opportunities.
