    I have been working at Sun-Sentinel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people that still work there are good people who work hard, have a good sense of humor and want to do well.
    They are making some changes that seem interesting and are needed in terms of products, how news is presented etc but it seems to be too little too late.

    Cons

    Leadership does not communicate with staff or even talk to staff. Constant layoffs and good people being let go. Low morale and still no words of inspiration or mission or vision or understanding from management. People seem to be invisible to management. The environment is boring, uninspired, lack luster, and people are fearful of being let go. Employees who have been there for years have no idea how a really good company should be run or what a good company feels like - which is really sad. They accept poor treatment because they don't know any better. Not sure why management even wants to work in such a drab and uncreative environment themselves. No real investment into employees. Building is drab, run down and boring.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cleaning house and clean up your acts. Be the change. Be dynamic. Be present. Be transparent. Be inspiring. Be understanding. Be in touch. Be creative. Be a part of the team not a part from your teams. Be better and you will get more.

    Pros

    No pros to think of

    Cons

    This job has no room for advancement. The Newspaper is a dying breed. No one here has received a raise in years. People that recently get jobs here leave within a month or two. Everyday people come in here waiting for it all to end. The halls are empty, there's barely anyone here anymore due to major layoffs. Don't waste your time! Find a job with much more incentive; because there is none given here

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that actually have managerial experience and actually care about their staff

    Pros

    There aren't any pros at this company...none at all

    Cons

    Too many managers, Plenty of Micro-managing. They only promote who they want. The ones that actually work hard don't get any kind of recognition, they just give them more work. No room for advancement, no raises given. They are continually laying people off, so everyday you have no idea if your department is next...the moral is very low...do not apply to this company

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't listen to anything that is said, so this would be a waste of time

    I have been working at Sun-Sentinel full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is a strong sense of family. Co-workers that care about their peers and are willing to go the extra mile.

    Cons

    No growth or advancement opportunities. Poor decision making on the part of middle and senior managers. Low morale due to layoffs and indifference by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Before deciding on a plan of action, think it through before it's implemented. Saving $100 today may cost $10,000 a month or two later. Open lines of communication with your employees and stop trying to bs them. They know better and so should you.
