A company with great benefits but lacking in compensation and diversity.

Pros

The company has been around a long time and has weathered tough economic times before. It will make through again.

Cons

If you are not on the Des Moines campus, it is just not the same. After visiting the campus for some training, I really got a warm, mid-western, fuzzy feeling inside and was proud to work for the company. It was only temporary. After going back to the station, it just didn't translate.

Advice to Management

Great job with Health and Wellness initiatives. It is very encouraging to see them care about your health. I know it saves them money in the long run to have healthy employees, but you do get a sense that they really care. Especially with the amount of programs and incentives offered. Working at a southern station is nothing compared to the rest of the company. In the area of diversity it is horrible. Diversity training would be welcome in the South! It is truly shocking some of the things top management will do and say. Just because they are 'old school' doesn't make it ok!

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Friendly people there.

    Cons

    The pay is ok, company seems to be going under. Their earnings and so forth are all down. They focus too much on traditional media and not enough on new media that actually makes them money. (They have good ideas and projects, but they're just not making much money from those ideas.) I guess you can't really blame them since its hard to make money with online stuff these days.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus just on working. They like results. Don't kiss ass. Get there on time, make sure that you work hard. Realize that gossip exists in that place, but just don't get too caught up in it.
