    I have been working at Wicked Local as an intern

    Pros

    none at all, why even ask

    Cons

    Left voicemails and sent emails they never respond to remove my name they publish without my consent.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't check your voicemails don't ask people to leave messages.

    Pros

    good benefit package including health, dental, vision, 401K, and excellent time off

    Cons

    reps who have been there for years never get salary increase and are making less than new employees coming in. Commission opportunity is the same for most, but management will exaggerate average income potential. Management is disorganized and there is WAY too much customer service for a sales rep position. Much of the day spent handling problems

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Wicked Local full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The South Shore office for Gatehouse Media is in Marshfield.. The Publisher who oversees that office,, Mark Olivieri, is a former Sales Rep himself so understands all the challenges that entails.

    Cons

    Gatehouse Media New England has had massive lay-offs, making production and reporting extremely difficult. They own the Patriot Ledger as well as many weekly publications. Operations have become very cumbersome, disjointed.

    Pros

    They haven't taken our coffee away yet

    Cons

    They bully there employees. Losing money hand over fist. I wouldn't recommend working there. Won't be in business much longer

    Advice to Management

    Ease up and show your loyal employees some respect
