I worked at WNET full-time

Pros

There are some pretty nice people here and the viewers mostly appreciate the channel very much! When you tell people where you work they think its really cool and tell you their favorite programs.

Cons

There is very little room for growth or movement here, especially for more entry-level jobs. If you're young and just looking for work while you get your life together, I'd recommend another company unless you're in a position directly related to your career goals. The departments are small and it's very hard to move from one to another if that's your plan. The departments are also quite understaffed so be prepared to do the job of at least 2 people (since 2 people probably DID do your job before the recession). You may be excited and passionate at first but that will die quickly once overwork, underpay and supervisory bureaucracy settle overpowers it. Again, there are much worse places out there, but it's disappointing how unfulfilling working for "viewers like you" can be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More opportunities for growth and learning. Many jobs can plateau very quickly...

    I worked at WNET

    Pros

    The people who work there are very bright, inspiring, professional, passionate and friendly.

    Cons

    The only con about working at WNET is that you won't get paid as much as you would in a private network.
