Great staff and management, professional and fun atmosphere. An environment in which a journalist can continually learn and grow, if corporate management did not keep laying people off. Could not recommend it at this time.

Your health, and personal life will completely disappear if you take this position. They don't care about their employees, or their contracted workers, or their customers. They only want to make as much money as possible before everything goes digital.

Copy Editor, Staff Writer and Editorial Writer (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – March 23, 2013
I was hired as a part-time editorial writer for The Eagle before I had my undergraduate degree and stayed with my hometown newspaper for many years before the industry slipped into an ongoing malaise that has since worsened. I especially loved being able to write editorials or stories that prompted change and in small ways, made Wichita a better place. Over time, however, I felt the paper's commitment to the city falter in ways that I did not agree with and had no say over. I decided reluctantly in 2008 that it was best for me to pursue other employment and accepted a voluntary buyout.
