Great Mission Idea, Old School model of management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsOne of the best reasons to work at KQED is the pure Mission Statement and the content they provide to the public. Quality non-commercial public media is a great idea. The working environment is pretty flexible as well. Compared to commercial media, there is less pressure to over-perform. So this works well if you have other obligations and would rather "work to live" instead of "live to work."

ConsEverything at KQED, like many non-profits, happens at a snail pace. From hiring, to raises, to promotions. It can take many, many months, even years to be recognized for your hard work.
And like many other non-profits, it seems that the salary scale is much more top heavy towards the management side then the people who do the grunt work.

Most departments are dead ends with little or no possibility of advancement and little support… Advice to Senior Management: Roll in newer, younger hires with more experience. More autonomy between employees and departments is necessary, far too often there… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
