I'd give The Denver Post overall very good ratings; it's a reputable company with many positive benefits.
ADVERTISING SALES ASSISTANT (Current Employee), Denver, CO – March 16, 2013
Pros: working with many interesting clients
Cons: short staffed
The Denver Post was a great company to work for, for many years. As the company started losing money, they kept having to downsize which made it hard for the remaining employees since they had to pick up the extra work load. During the last two years, the company started to focus on going digital which required even more training and more job responsibilities. – more... I truly loved working the The Post for years and survived may layoffs but last year one third of my department was laid off which included me. – less
Not really good atmosphere and unstable place to work with a lot of favoritism with some sales people.

Pros: perks, tickets for games.
Cons: management : micromanagement, some are bothersome. they do changes must of the time without considering your opinion.
Not a lot of stability. Hardest part: Commissin programs are unreacheable. Your success today will be your condenation tomorrow, for the way they recalculate month to month my commissions. They prommissed to me things that at the end were just lies. Due to my product is not important they don't put to much attention to me and the development of the – more... product. Every day management did a lot of pressure with different contest. Co workers some are accesible some don't I learned about online services a little bit of everything. That part is good. Enjoyable part: the opportunitty to do a lot of connections or networking and make good friends. – less
productive, fun team to work with, and very people friendly.

Pros: flexibility, great benefits, and great place to work
Cons: rude customers, and upselling
A typical day at work was very challenging fun to be there and strickly business. I learned about how many people read the paper and how important the paper was to some people. i also learned my people skills there and my Customer Service experience there and how important it is to be patient and very understanding when working in a call center dealing – more... with mostly the elderly. The manangemnet was GREAT and very precise very understanding and also flexible. my co-workers were all great we stuck together more like a big family then just work buddies. The hardest part of my job was trying to keep my cool with rude, mean customers. The most enjoyable part was knowing i would keep my customers satisfied and very comfortable with keeping their product and knowing i was going to work to keep people happy and satisfied. – less
Multi-Media Consultant (Former Employee), Denver, CO – November 6, 2013
Great company when I first started with them in 2006. After many changes in management, the workplace became very unprofessional and not a great place to make a career longterm. There is a lot of freedom and flexibility with the job which is the biggest pro. The product portfolio was excellent and I could work as an agency, and not a sales rep. Poor – more... management and high turnover made it a tough environment to succeed. – less
