Pros

It's a great station, good culture, hard working people. The newsroom folks work very hard and have a good time doing it.

Cons

Too many name changes, the brand changes too much.

Advice to Management

Stick with the brand you have now for longer than two years.

    Pros

    Good money while I was there but not so much anymore. Job itself was enjoyable.

    Cons

    Hideous treatment of employees. Constant browbeating over ridiculously petty procedures. Management hopelessly mired in meeting after meeting accomplishing nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Hold management to uniform professional standards and stop playing favorites.


  2. Great Place to Work in Sales. Mobility Can be Tough.

    Pros

    Pay was fair for doing an honest days work. Face it, no one's giving away money, so you'll have to do the activity, make the calls, make the most of your face-to-face appointments to reach your goals. If you do, you're compensated fairly. They also had good on-going sales training.

    Cons

    There weren't alot of management spots (which I suppose is a good thing) and those that held those jobs had for a while and didn't seem to be going anywhere. That's fine if you're happy staying in sales, but if management is your aim, it could take you a while or you may have to job-hop a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the ongoing training and with the monthly sales reports. Keeping an honest and open dialogue is appreciated and helps the frontline employees see where you're coming from.
