    I worked at Sinclair Broadcast Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This company provides opportunity for advancement, technical training and lots of places to work across the US. They have stations from the East coast to the West coast in great places to live and work. They have a 401K that is matched annually with company stock and is employee directed. The benefits are decent. The work can be challenging, fun and rewarding. They try to give back to the community as often as they can.

    Cons

    It is a 24 hour/365 day broadcasting company. Some jobs do not have favorable hours.
