    as an independent contractor with a lot of experience I was given a chance to shine and meet my potential

    Reporter (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsPRO
    High per diem rate for independent contracting, good personal support from staff, but that may have to do with a high comfort level with reporting from outside the central office and rarely being embroiled in internal office politics. Turnover gives one a chance to move up. Young, friendly staff.
    Billing issues resolved in a good manner that is as efficient as they can be, given that the office I work with has to deal with a central bureaucracy. They want to keep their stringers happy.

    ConsA sclerotic view of institutional change, e.g. expansion, has made it difficult to understand why a 6 billion dollar publicly traded company can't commit to a new news bureau. Artistically, limited change in form of news story. Creative potential not 100% realized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo to bat more to make the news programming more of what you believe in your heart it should be.

    If you can avoid your position being outsourced, It's great

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsThe starting pay / benefits is better than the industry average.

    ConsQuality and creativity continue to be sacrificed to the automation gods with no consideration beyond cost-saving.
