Good people, but work environment feels stuffy...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsI only have experience on the 2nd floor (TV production, program distribution, communications). Met some really wonderful people at my time with KQED. Everyone is pretty passionate about public media. Shuttle from BART is pretty great.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring in more young people with energy to enliven the at-time drab climate, but keep those that have contributed vibrant energy for a long time!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
