    I have been working at WKBW full-time

    Pros

    Because the television station is under-staffed employees have lots of opportunities to teach themselves many different skills.
    Good health care benefits.

    Cons

    Company offers very little training and is not interested in investing in the product to make it competitive. Management also prefers to turn a blind eye to its own failures and instead blames its weak performance on its hard-working and talented, but overworked, employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the company's strengths: Name recognition and talented, established anchor teams. Build on those strengths. Realize that you have talented employees on your team and they are not what's wrong with this company. Invest in the support they need to make the television station successful once again.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process may have changed since I was hired since managers have changed. For me it was very informal. I had a couple of informal interviews, was asked to put together some sample reports, and then I was hired. The feedback since my hiring has been very informal. I had only one formal review over several years and that was in the first year of my employment.
