We have seven core culture values that drive the way we work together because we believe when you love what you do, you do better work.

Our company has a strong tradition that we aim to build upon. But to move forward in a media world, we have to be willing to stretch our minds and our ideas beyond what’s comfortable. That’s where innovation comes in. To be innovative, we need to challenge each other and never refuse to make time to brainstorm new, creative ideas. 

It’s simple. All employees are valuable and all employees deserve respect. This company was built on that virtue. We create a culture of respect through honest and direct communication and through compassion for our fellow employees. At FCC, there is no place for arrogance or rude behavior. 

It’s important to be invested in your job and to find passion in what you do. When you take ownership of your work, you are more likely to succeed. You are also more likely to have fun.

Work hard, but work smart, too. When the day is done, go home and do the things that bring you satisfaction. FCC recognizes that our work demands a great deal of time away from our loved ones, but we will strive to help with the balance and integration of work and family. 

The more passion you have for your job, the more likely you are to enjoy it. The more fun you are having, the more successful you will be and the more successful we will be. Fun means different things to different people, but at the heart of it is positivity. Express yourself in a way that is real to you, and don’t be afraid to laugh out loud. 

Success has not and will not come from one newspaper, one department, nor one person alone. We need a true spirit of collaboration to move forward in a way that’s sustainable. That means finding the common ground with our fellow employees and relying on each other’s strengths and talents to create a stronger, well-rounded company for the future. 

Every employee has a voice. No matter how big or small the issue, we are committed to listening. This is essential in creating a culture where employees feel valued. It’s also essential to making our environment a place where people feel safe and supported — all of which are necessary as we move forward. 


Competitive PTO

We know work-life balance is important, which is why we offer a great paid time off and paid holiday package (that includes your birthday!) so you can take time away from the office. We'll miss you, though!

Comprehensive Benefits

Healthy employees make for a healthy workplace. We offer it all -- medical, dental vision, life insurance, EAP services and parental leave.


We understand that despite all these amazing benefits, you'll probably want to retire some day. And we've got you covered for that, too.

Variety & Opportunity

Variety is the spice of life -- and of your career, too! We have a wide range of positions across all lines of work, which means ample opportunity to try out different paths on your journey to the perfect career. Hint: You've found it!

Wellness Programs

We care about the health and well-being of our employees, which is why we offer perks like wellness classes, flu shots and more. We help you take care of you.


We believe in giving back to our communities, which is why every full-time employee gets paid volunteer hours to spend with a local non-profit in need.
