    I have been working at St. Louis Post Dispatch full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Have a large advertising product platform. There are many resources within to include a certified, premiere digital agency. The people are friendly and great benefits offered. There's also a workout room in the building for employees who want to use!

    Cons

    the misconception people have about newspaper readership.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of good employees, pay them well and they will stay. Let go of negative, entitled ones that complain. No one wants to hear it.

    Pros

    Very hard to think about pros for this company. Flexible hours is about it, if they let you work from home.

    Cons

    This place is bankrupt. Terrible benefits, no wifi in the office. Old top down mentality. Not a place to work, once I get an offer at another employer I'm out.

    Advice to Management

    Quit your day job
