Pros: centrally located downtown, friendly employees
Cons: no raises, no advancement opportunities
The Express-News is filled with friendly people and good management, the only thing that is starting to falter is employee morale. The company is a good place to start off, but you can only go so far, as advancement opportunities are rare, and raises are extinct. I learned much at my time here, skills like department management, training others, creating & preparing training materials, & resource management. The company has a good tuition reimbursement plan with a local private university, which I took advantage of once I made department Lead. My manager is the best, and I count him as one of my friends. He has encouraged me to go out and seek a better career, as he knows what the situation is like at work. The most enjoyment I have is when I am given difficult tasks to complete, and must learn/research how to completed the tasks. Such tasks are also the hardest part of my position, as I have mastered the skills necessary to complete any other tasks during the first or second shift.
