Pros

When one actually does a good job, your peers and co-workers acknowledge it and are appreciative of the work being done.

Cons

Good work is ignored from supervisors and above, internal promotion is nearly impossible, long term growth does not exist as mid level employees are stagnant with no interest in self growth nor helping lower level employees to grow in other arenas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually listen to the annual reviews from the people at the bottom more than the people in the middle. Honesty was given from "entry level" workers who have been at the location for 2+ years.

    Pros

    The television industry by nature is a fun industry to work in. It's a fast-paced environment and you learn a lot in a small amount of time. Your co-workers know what they're doing and it's a great team environment. Gray has high standards for their stations, and that definitely helps you in the long run, especially if you don't plan on working there the rest of your life. It's a good place to learn the ropes.

    Cons

    You get paid horrendously for the work you do and the hours you put in. I worked on the morning broadcast for a while, which meant getting in by 4 a.m. every day. For that I got paid under seven an hour. You better have another job, savings or generous parents before you take a job with Gray. Many of my co-workers, as well as myself, had a second job to make ends meet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more.
