      Pros

      There is freedom to write up stories as you please, mostly press releases though.

      Cons

      The hours. News is 24/7 and you'll start out with the worst possible shifts. The job is two jobs combined into one, Assignment Editor AND Digital Content Producer. You are not compensated for the additional work. There is a lot of micromanagement as well, even if you are doing your job correctly you will be questioned as higher ups do not pay close attention to the day-to-day work. Pay is bad, 2% increases a year as well.

      Not the same company it used to be

      Pros

      Good people, staff, a lot of talent who work very hard. but they are leaving or thinking of leaving as staff size continues to decline and demands remain the same.

      Cons

      Not the same CMG it used to be when owned by Cox Enterprises, the cuts make it very difficult to do quality journalism and keep staff motivated; keeping a full staff is challenging too.

      Pros

      Mark Arum is a great guy.

      Cons

      This company is a sinking ship and will chew you up and spit you out. And this is not simply coming from a jaded former employee - these are the facts. CMG does not care about their employees, namely their support staff. Management treats support like work mules and underpays them, doesn’t appreciate them, and gives our insulting “incentives” like $25 Starbucks gift cards instead of legitimate promotion opportunities and raises. I never received a raise when I was working here. Not only that, but the sales people are demeaning and degrade the support staff as if we were less than human. Support is not seen as valuable - we were bullied and mistreated and the root of the problem is that this company is based in greed and immoral values. There is no work life balance and no regard for employees as human beings - all handouts and compliments are fake and used as “rewards” for back breaking work. Additionally the team culture is disgustingly fake, and the sales team as a whole even promotes a sexist and classist culture that views sales people as bread winners and support as replaceable objects. Gossip, pettiness, and horribly mean attitudes prevail on this team. They do not value human life or the work it takes to support the millions of dollars a few at the top take home every year. If you are looking for a sales support role - or work in support of any kind - run as fast, and I mean as fast, as you can from this backwards company.
