    I worked at The Post and Courier full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people have worked for this company in the past and a few still remain after rounds and rounds of layoffs cutting workers and adding more managers.

    Cons

    Too many managers and not enough workers create a low pay and over managed atmosphere. Managers produce nothing but paperwork and reports to push upward. Very little upward mobility even after years of loyal service.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of half the management. Go back to hyperlocal news coverage and selling print advertising 80% and digital 20%.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at The Post and Courier full-time

    Pros

    No pros to be able to come up with.

    Cons

    Illegal practices, discriminatory behavior and poor business practices by management. Management cuts corners regardless and does not care about employees. Poor benefits and can not get adequate or correct information from human resources. Only training provided was a driver's exam with video.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that many employees WITNESS your actions. They speak in volumes compared to words. Understand that you run an antiquated business along with antiquated business practices and ignorance.
