    I worked at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a cafe downstairs and rooms for mothers to pump. The health benefits are very good because it is a Cox owned company.

    Cons

    Location and traffic are horrible. "clock in, clock out" mentality. If I wanted that I would not have gone to college and stayed in retail. They are so antsy and scared people aren't working that they make people feel micromanaged. You have a badge and are asked why you left at 5:24 and not 5:30. It makes you want to be a clock watcher...because they are. They also do not train you on product and have a wonky insertion order process.

    Advice to Management

    Create a trusting culture that mentors and helps your reps not make them feel they are walking on eggshells from the moment they start. Create servant leaders that will create servant sellers for your clients.
