    Pros

    There is never a dull day at CBC; lots of opportunity to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Extraordinarily political, to the point where it feels like the way you do your job may be less important than how well you manage "up".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to encourage mid level manegement to take risks without fear of reprisal.

    I have been working at CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Pros

    I love my job at the Corp. I've been given the opportunity to work in many areas... My experience has been great here at CBC.

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement. Prefer to higher from outside than promote talent from within. Decision making gridlock at the management levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many good people in the organization, but few of them are at the director level or above. Many of those brought in from outside have little understanding of the corporation's history or culture, and would rather force the organization to suit them than adjust themselves to fit the organization. It seems the higher you go up the ladder, the more insecurity and micromanaging you encounter. Ultimately, your input and ideas and insights are not wanted--the vision and values and strategies are all formed at the very top (or offsite) without any employee participation, and even the most well paid and talented people simply follow their orders, or else.
