    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Duluth News Tribune full-time

    Pros

    Interesting industry to be in right now with lots of changes if you survive long enough.

    Cons

    The main interest by management is to cut costs/people and manage by the numbers. Publisher really doesn't have an interest in the community or people working there, but rather whatever can get him up the corporate ladder.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Duluth News Tribune for less than a year

    Pros

    Learned a lot about the business of newspaper production, distribution and what the power of a single placed ad can do if it is done right.

    Cons

    Not enough business for the amount of sales representatives. More education on the internet sales and how they apply to the clients. Something more tangible to show during presentations. IPAD or Tablet.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Duluth News Tribune full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Room to stretch your legs as a writer at a paper that still values accurate, fair and in-depth journalism. Can learn new skills. Work both independently and as a team. Fast-paced, challenging yet fun industry. Decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Industry continues to struggle and so does the paper as it tries to find its place in the (mostly free) digital media era. Not a huge fan of its corporate owners. Pay and benefits on the decline.

    I worked at Duluth News Tribune

    Pros

    They are flexible and the atmosphere was pretty laid back. They are fairly open with their employees and are pretty good about letting you know what is going on with the company.

    Cons

    Too many of the higher management is not very good at what they do. Some departments can be "cliquey", leading to poor candidates getting promoted in some instances.

    I worked at Duluth News Tribune

    Pros

    Fair camaraderie among the rank and file

    Cons

    Arrogant, out-of-touch senior management. Jaw-dropping nepotism. Below-average pay, especially for those working undesirable night and weekend shifts. (Many newspapers pay extra to the workers who get those shifts.)

    I worked at Duluth News Tribune

    Pros

    Good place to gain experience in many areas due to doing more with less employees.

    Cons

    Pressure to accomplish more with less is constant and threat of layoffs are constant. Management tends to make decisions without knowledge of how it affects the workforce and training for new assignments is seriously lacking.
