Tour Commander - Security (Current Employee) –  Melville, NYJune 2, 2018
Very nice people, easy to get time off if necessary, salary is fair. Working three, twelve and a half hour days is fantastic. The opportunity for overtime exists, but is never mandatory.

Learned a lot and Great Work culture
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Melville, NYMay 11, 2018
I Learned a lot working at Newsday Media Group. They have a great work culture. Downsides include lack of recognition and growth potential. Promotions are rare within my specific department & they are not flexible when it comes to working remotely when it comes to things like snow storms within my specific department.

Close to home good stepping stone
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Melville, NYJanuary 3, 2017
Its not a place you want to spend your entire career in. Poor upper management, hard workers never noticed, promotion not given to those who deserve it. Extreme lack of communication. Only good thing are the people you work with and that it is a close commute from home. This company has so much potential for a newspaper but will never go outside the box. Upper Managers like to get away with the minimal effort and just coast with what they know.

Fast pace, social
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Oceanside, NYAugust 11, 2016
A ton of employee/client interaction which helps build brand loyalty. Making each experience an amazing one for the client is most important. The late night shifts help build a relationship between co-workers.

Newsday Media Digital Marketing Specialist
Digital Marketing Specialist- Newsday Connect (Current Employee) –  Melville, NYMay 4, 2015
Working with SMB's to provide up-to-date digital campaigns in a suite of products designed individually to increase the credibility of the business in order to increase their profitability on a day-to-day business.

Visit existing customers as well to maintain a high-quality sense of customer service...always leaving my information with them to contact me if there is an issue or any questions on their account.
I am a very high customer service-oriented employee which has resulted in a great referral system for me to attain new business.

I am a people person who has always been in a selling capacity in every aspect of any job I have ever had including owning my own businesses for 20 years. This has served as a great advantage for me in my sales positions over the years---first, it puts me in a very good position with client, and secondly, it helps me to recommend products that I know will work for them. It gives me a sense of value and trust for my clients.
Pros
Working with SMB's to help them succeed
Cons
Prefer not to list
