In more good ways than bad, you don't feel like it's a huge corporation.

Pros

Great benefits, extremely intelligent peers and superiors, great perks, good food, incredible PTO, especially if you get on the newsroom schedule, pretty good about comp time when PTO may be blocked for major projects, opportunities for growth and advancement, growth and advancement supported by superiors, good goal-setting and review process, fun work environment (Techwood campus), good employee care (esp. when long hours are required), information sharing is good on a macro scale, opportunities for making changes to processes and customs.

Cons

Information sharing on a micro scale is not so good, mainly due to the fact that departments are siloed; but this is being actively improved by many departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to work to increase collaboration and departmental intercommunication. Agile processes have greatly improved this within our team.

    Pros

    It really is the only game in town for big-time national broadcasting and entertainment, and the perks that go along with that can be really fun.

    Cons

    The downsides have been few and far between in my experience. Cost-cutting measures in recent years have reduced some of the auxiliary benefits (local attraction tickets, field trips, etc.), but not enough to make it unfun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to foster intra-channel communication -- especially when we're expected to present a united front to our parent company Time Warner.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. There are company wide opportunities for movement. Programs are available for employees to learn about other jobs and divisions.

    Cons

    Middle managers are allowed to hand promotions to people they like, even if they don't have experience or qualifications for the job. Human resources has been slow or unable to correct the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to see that middle management positions are given to employees with adequate experience and qualifications. Morale is bad enough without employees having to report to people who have no idea what their direct reports do and no interest in learning. It used to be nearly unheard of for someone with no experience in a position to be given the responsibility of managing people in that position. It happens much too often now. Morale and the product suffers for it.
