How is your company portrayed in the media? Do a quick search on your company in major newspapers like the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, or the Financial Times, or alternatively, do a Google News search (use Google Advanced Search to get better results).
Search for the name of the company in the article headline
Limit your search to the last six months (or shorter if you get too many results)
Articles that talk about problems don’t necessarily use the word “problem." Read up on the company, its competitors, and its environment. Problems will likely emerge as you gain a comprehensive and holistic view of the current position the company is in. When you have a more defined scope (e.g., is it labor, environmental practices, branding, or...?), use specific keywords in Business Source Premier, Nexis Uni, or Google to find more evidence to support your argument.
