Great people. Good pay. Very good management. Loved working there. Wish I was still working there.

    Pros

    Some of the stations did let their employees go early on holidays and had station parties.

    Cons

    pay is not the best, the management is terrible ( good old boys network alive and well ), people who were in tight with "movers and shakers" got key jobs that otherwise would never get even considered, lots of pressure to "produce" and watching consultants parade in and out of the stations giving them the same tired and unproductive advice and walking out with LOADS of cash

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit worrying about YOUR pockets and start worrying about your employee's pockets. You worry about cost, yet your poor pay and conditions force employees to leave. You then hire a new person and they make mistakes and errors in learning that cost you MONEY.

    Pros

    They usually would let employees leave a little early the day before holidays, pretty good pay, great insurance, and pretty good paid time off.

    Cons

    The biggest con is the management at the station level. Crying out to upper management for help produced no results. Management needs to be firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. The reason many are leaving is due to management. Hello! Why would employees be looking for other jobs! Please, MG, look in the mirror.
