Pros

There WERE some great people at AccuWeather, sadly most have left by now. Trouble is, they were beaten down so badly by the owners and top brass, that they became battle weary.

Cons

The owners need to retire and pass the reigns to the next generation. The industry has dramatically changed, and AccuWeather is stuck in a rut of "how it used to be".

Advice to Management

See above. Look to the great people who have left you and try and get them back. Improve the pay and the benefits, and then step away and let the company grow. Go public, get an influx of capital and SOAR

    Pros

    AccuWeather has a lot of different departments where there is a lot to learn from. The experience and knowledge that one can take advantage of can be extremely helpful and financially rewarding at another company later in your career, but AccuWeather is run with the idea that everyone is replaceable and so opportunities for professional and salary growth are extremely rare and limited.

    Cons

    salary, benefits and management are not great. everyone is watching their ass and unfortunately this leads to a lack of creativity. It is very hard to understand the structure of the company and how it operates, who reports to who, and how things get approved. There are a lot of middle managers and a lot of times you wonder what these people do and how they got there.

    Advice to Management

    encourage creativity, show your appreciation to employees more.
