I worked at Hearst Corporation part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The staff is very friendly and helpful and the job is always interesting. You are asked to wear many hats so you get to learn all the different things there are to do when working on producing a news cast.

Cons

Producers and Directors seem to generally dislike each other.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on teambuilding between production and the talent.

    I worked at Hearst Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good, stable company. Easy to work 40 hours/week, management friendly but aloof. Hours are not great but they are consistent. Benefits include good healthcare plan and 401k with company contributions.

    Cons

    Pay was near the bottom of the market payscale, not much potential to grow one's career there.

    I worked at Hearst Corporation full-time

    Pros

    great building and company perks

    Cons

    management doesn't care about your ideas, long hours, constant layoffs/"restructuring" Upper management makes decisions (without input( that create more work for middle management and lower levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your employees like people instead of worker-bees. Everyone is too busy trying to cover their own tracks that there is a lot of inefficiency. Get feedback from the staff before you make a change that will effect them.
