I have been working at Belo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Lots of very friendly people willing to show you the ropes and teach the nuts and bolts or marketing, the online sales side in particular. Fairly progressive and accommodating as a department,

Cons

The TV side of sales is fraught with politics and very grinding busy work. The structure is very conservative and it is almost impossible to advance if you do not want to cold call your life away.

Advice to Management

Make a bigger effort to develop your employees and make an investment in them to grow in the company and increase the retention rate.

    I worked at Belo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in a top market with a CBS affiliate is nice on the resume. Equipment was ok. Has the potential to be a great station and place to work.

    Cons

    Not valuing your most important assets (employees) is at its finest here. The only people that get treated well are the Sales reps and onscreen Talent. The management style of "squeeze every cent out of your workers" proves they do not value the people who work to make the shows happen. Also, the "we're" broke as a company but pay big money to onscreen talent increases the distrust and of management.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people. ALL of your people.


  2. great family environment at different stations, until you want to be promoted.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    PTO program allows for adequate time off. Producers are paid time and a half for overtime.

    Cons

    very little room for development. Does not make diversity a priority in hiring... especially on the management level.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more development programs and mentoring across affiliates. Consider that every person good in one field... may not make a great manager
