Pros: Sense of accomplishment, flexible with personal life
Cons: lack of planning by management, bad technology launches, pay cuts and layoffs
it's wonderful to know that your efforts provide the Times ability to be such a wonderful newspaper helping Florida. However, the lack of an overall plan in management in the revenue departments, and some very badly planned launches of technology make it hard to be succesful at times. For a communication company, sometimes there is a very little of it. And the constantly shrinking paychecks due to cutbacks impact morale. I saw my base pay shrink by 25% with no warning, in one afternoon due to cuts. Similarly layoffs hit with no warning. The company is full of great honest people who do want to make a difference, but the need to change with the the nature of business is hitting the older managers hard.
