Good people, rough leadership.
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Decatur, ILMarch 22, 2012
With print media going south, the expectations of selling print media is rather high. The advertising costs are through the roof which makes the newspaper itself not worth reading. My position was pretty low stress, yet I took advantage of it and paid the price. If leadership were more personable and people-freindly I think things would have been much different. I certainly wish I had dont things differently
Pros
great people to work with
Cons
low pay, high stress environment

Features writer (Former Employee) –  Decatur ILFebruary 22, 2012
This was my second job and I really enjoyed working there. Some may wonder why. It's because being the only show in town, we really covered Decatur and Central Illinois like a blanket. Lots of news, features, etc. Good people to work with. Lee Enterprises was a good company. Has fallen on hard times, like most newspapers. But overall, good.
Pros
plenty of news to cover; good people to work with
Cons
you are in a small midwestern city, but i loved it there.
