Company Culture

This company has a great culture where all employees work together.

Challenging Work

The work is a little challenging sometimes, but it is nothing hard.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I do not really see any places to improve at the moment.

What I like about the company

McClatchy has a great company where there are a lot of people from different backgrounds, but they work well together. I also get a chance to work remotely as well as have flexible work hours.

What I dislike about the company

I think they might be thinking too much at the bottom line and less about their employees at times.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I can think of nothing that this company would do to fix the path they are on. Money and greed have become their gods and no one is exempt from the layoff if management deems them obsolete or finds someone younger to take their place.

What I like about the company

The company began deteriorating in 2016. Furloughs and layoffs became commonplace. Employees became property, not people. We were lied to often about what was happening with the re-org. Asked at a company meeting if a specific team was in peril, the answer from the president was absolutely not. Three months later, the entire department was eliminated.

What I dislike about the company

Established workers were slowly eased out as the company hired more and more 20-30 year olds. Work was being sent overseas to India or to other departments. When asked, the response was not cordial, employees were no longer viewed as assets but as something to use up with no loyalty from the company for 10-15, 30+ years of service. More and mor jobs moved overseas. Our IT department not only moved out of the building but to India. We could not understand the strong accents on the phone when trying to debug our own laptops, often resorting to texts to communicate.

  • I wish we had a bigger staff so we could provide more local coverage.

What I like about the company

They allow us to own our sections and write what we believe is important for our readers. The staff is also very supportive of each other. We do something that makes a difference in our local communities.

What I dislike about the company

We need a better office space but they are working on that. Communication at times could also be better.
