    Pros

    Talented and intelligent co-workers, #1 station in the market, opportunities to contribute to the community's well-being, solid place to get started and learn the ropes

    Cons

    Internal communication is so bad that the atmosphere, despite the truly good people in the building, can be poisonous. Operations, given the nature of the work, move so quickly those problems fester because they are seldom addressed and attempts to fix them happen even less frequently.

    Advice to Management

    The problems feel like a failure of leadership, not maliciousness or of bad people. The stated mission and the reality often seemed out of sync. Having a job at WMAZ could be a truly rewarding experience, but communication has to improve first or the tension in the newsroom will continue to affect the quality of an otherwise excellent station.

    Pros

    For a media company they are definitely looking towards the future and acquiring many new and cutting edge business partners.

    Cons

    Constant changing of "strategy". We go through initiative after initiative that are completely different.

    Advice to Management

    Support staff helps the sales staff exceed goals by more than their compensation.
