    I have been working at WGBH full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relaxed work atmosphere (mostly) - great energy and creativity from the staff. New software is starting to bring WGBH up to speed.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement can be very limited. Interaction with different teams can be limited as well. Lots of levels of middle management, so getting things approved can take forever. Pay is not as competitive with for sector positions as it should be.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at WGBH.

    Interview Details

    When being interviewed, my interviewer had her phone out on the desk, which is totally normal. I've seen it many times. What I hadn't seen, however, was someone who couldn't put it down. She was constantly typing away on it as I was answering her questions. Very off-putting. I'm surprised if she heard a fifth of what I was saying.

    After the interview, I sent a thank you email and received nothing back.

    Never heard if I got the internship or not.
