Solid Newspaper Gig
Reporter (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNJuly 1, 2013
Pros: few layoffs, complimentary gym, great location
Cons: lack of leave, old-school mentality persists
I worked at the Times Free Press for four years, and the experience was really positive. The paper is strong financially, and the editors still believe in lots and lots of community coverage and good journalism.

One down side: The paper has a really conservative leave policy. You're only given 10 days of vacation leave each year for your first 5 years – more... of employment. That's a real bummer, but sometimes managers bend the rules if you ask in the right way.

Like all newspapers, raises and bonuses are hard to come by in the newsroom, though I'm sure the sales side is nicely compensated for making their goals.

Overall, this is a solid place to work. If you are inclined to work at a newspaper, don't overlook the chance to be a part of the Times Free Press. – less

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNFebruary 22, 2013
Pros: good hours and good benefits;
Cons: not making enough money to stay afloat
Worked in billing department and handled billing questions and other administrative duties. Co-workers were very nice and so was management. The most enjoyable part of job was knowing that I helped a customer resolve a problem.

good co-workers and a great gym
Web Developer (Current Employee), Chattanooga TnNovember 9, 2012
Pros: gym, location
Cons: no healthcare, outdated equipment, outdated software, no raises ever
The location is smack in the middle of downtown so it's great for a lunchtime bike ride or finding a place to eat with the co-workers. I have learned almost everything i know about web design while working here. The management is pretty straight forward, Im given a task and it's up to me to get it done. Management is there to follow my progress and – more... make sure I meet deadlines. My co-workers have become like brothers and sisters and since I spend most of my time in this room with them, it's a good thing that we can get along and make each other laugh. The hardest part of the job is the fast paced pressure and the constant shifting of priorities. What I enjoy most about working here is that the variety of projects that I've worked on has facilitated the expansion of my skills as a web developer. – less
