I have been working at PBS

Pros

Great vacation/sick/maternity leave benefits; good 403-B employer matched contribution; flexiblity for time off; interesting co-workers; fantastic mission.

Cons

Low salaries; very low raises (3% in a "good year"); very difficult to get a promotion; Senior Management's pay is out of scale (very high) when compared to what the masses earn; Senior VP over my division is a poor fit for the job; conflict between members of Senior Management negatively affect how those of us in the trenches can perform our jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that the salaries PBS pays-- in terms of the DC area being a very high-cost of living location-- are very low.

Internal conflicts between Senior Management members cause trickle-down issues that affect job performance of others.

Implement a system where those who perform well and are eager to move up and take on more responsibilty are actually given promotions.

    Pros

    It's a great work environment. Everyone is very helpful, friendly and supportive. There's a good deal of trying to make everything as efficient as possible and make teams work as well as possible.

    Cons

    Not much to say here. I guess there are a lot of very busy people. Since the budget for new his isn't always big, rules trend to be broader and each person does more.
