    Pros

    Amazing place to work for. People are laid back, bosses are kind, decent pay, training is great, Its a fun place that values its employees, even offering a few corporate outings each year. Little turnaround.

    Cons

    Hard to get an actual Full time job here. Hires a lot of freelancers on year/year and a half contracts. Obviously there is no health insurance for freelancers. When time is nearing end, you can use the internal job postings to look for a full time position and be guaranteed an interview, but there is a lot of competition. Once in, it is quite rare for people to leave.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    It's a family friendly company with a laid back yet professional work environment. The company also has an enviable reputation in broadcast and cable television.

    Cons

    They don't allow much room for mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Train managers and above to develop their employees more. Many people I have talked to feel their supervisors are only concerned with their own jobs/careers and not helping to grow those who work under them to advance.

    Pros

    The work environment is causal and when business is good you get alot of perks i.e free gifts, paid happy hours, etc. Alot of great people and they promoted from within.

    Cons

    Long hours depending on your department--I'm in ad sales. The pay is a little above the industry standard but still not great for entry level.

    Advice to Management

    They have some dinosaurs in management that need to be weeded out to improve operations and give some stagnant departments new life

    Pros

    Access to people at all levels. Lots of opportunity if you fit in.

    Cons

    Can take time getting used to the culture. You may have to pay your dues before you get accepted.

    Advice to Management

    Need to bring in several more progressive leaders while staying grounded to the core values,

    Pros

    Great people (end-users) to work with

    Cons

    They do not have many things in place, i.e: amount of time emails / voice mails are kept before discarded on the back-end

    Advice to Management

    When you change policy let everyone know so everyone is in sync
