AJC is part of the Cox Enterprise, a very competitive newspaper
Designer/Traffic Manager/Ad Creative Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 5, 2017
This company treats all employees like family. Training was provided due to a constant changing environment that provided educational support and challenges that I welcomed. The reason for leaving was the company downsized in 2008.

Not a bad place to work
Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 12, 2017
It was a newspaper, so I was fortunate to have been there through the good times when newspapers were king, and the bad times when newspapers fell out of favor.

Excellent company to work for.
Security Accounting Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 27, 2016
Typical day included scheduling, writing various reports and monitoring employee access/egress to the property. Learned to always plan ahead. Management was great. Co-workers will take initiative when trained properly. Hardest part was scheduling and parking. Most enjoyable was interacting with employees and vendors.

Doing more with less
Marketing Research Analyst (Current Employee) –  AtlantaSeptember 5, 2015
Very demanding company, management is asking employees to do more with less. Alot of people are unhappy and overworked. Enjoyed my coworkers, though, despite all of that. Parent company is great, as well as the benefits.

Workhorse with limited benefits
Advertising Assistant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 23, 2014
The culture is morally corrupt. Very limited benefits, and vacation days. Low paying salary and very depressing staff morale.

Typically friendly staff, supportive staff, relaxed and controlled corporate environment, generous benefits
Editorial Graphics Assistant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 7, 2012
The Atlanta-Journal Constitution is an excellent employer that promotes their staff to do their best while providing a positive environment for them to work. The atmosphere, though occasionally busy, has a sense of control and many projects can be completed within a reasonable time due to this. Benefits are also very good, with insurance provider choices available. The staff is also mature and supportive.
Pros
easygoing work environment
Cons
job advancement is difficult to achieve

Decent place to work
Administrative Assistant / Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 14, 2011
For many years The Atlanta Journal-Constitution was a place that I could call home, but about 5 years ago it began going through a lot of changes. Since then there has been a lot of tension and the feeling of 'not knowing what to expect'. That is not an easy feeling for any employee. I would come to work, but would always be fearful of whether each day would be my last.
Pros
cafeteria
Cons
long hours
