    Pros

    There are networking opportunities available.
    Professional self development can be achieved due to the small nature of the company if the employee has enough drive.
    Perks such as access to cultural events and restaurants were available, but were often in lieu of payment.

    Cons

    Disrespectful and unprofessional management.
    Incredibly low salaries and disregard for many standard compensations and working conditions of similar companies.
    Attitude of senior management towards employee concern for working conditions was generally that if the employee was dissatisfied, they could leave, as the company could always find someone else desperate to work in an English speaking environment to fill the position.

    Advice to Management

    Accept the financial limitations of your small company and develop a strategy that works best within these conditions: one that is not to the financial and emotional detriment of your employees.
    Learn to embrace experienced, talented or qualified employees, instead of adopting a policy of constant staff turnover.
    Making the same mistakes over and over for years does not make you experienced. Take a business course, preferably one focused on the media industry.

    "Sinking paper that tries to save money by underpaying and firing their content-producing employees."

    Pros

    It's a flexible environment - essentially freelance. Because no-one really knows what they're doing, it's pretty easy to get away with anything. There are good perks like free tickets, meals, etc.

    Cons

    There's seemingly no direction from management, and as such, it's difficult to understand what they expect - which can be frustrating to no end. The bar is incredibly low in terms of content and as such, it doesn't inspire confidence in those who create content.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your business. Take an online publishing class, and learn newspaper layout. Invest in the talent, and cut the fat of those who don't produce regularly solid work. Hire staff writers, pay them well, and change the way you look at revenue generation.
