    I worked at PBS

    Pros

    Great leadership, company that is easy to be proud of. PBS really seems to value its employees, which can be seen through its compensation, benefits, retention, and recognition.

    Cons

    I guess you could say compensation, but for a non-profit, I thought it was pretty good. I even got a bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    PBS: Do your homework about the station/PBS relationship. This is not a media company. It's a membership association.

    I worked at PBS

    Pros

    Salaries are better than most non-profits as PBS compares itself to "media" companies

    Cons

    PBS/Station relationship is tense; business model is locked in the past which makes it difficult for PBS and the stations to move forward and provide the best service to Americans. As a result, it's a very difficult work environment that tends to be driven by station politics versus the best goals for its audience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push forward on a new model that consolidates stations by states and creates more efficiencies to free up resources across the system
