It's a good-hearted, smart bunch of people in an underfunded enterprise that has struggled to keep up with the times.

Pros

Smart people with good intentions who are there because they love public broadcasting and are proud of the excellent work they do with limited resources.

Cons

Limited resources, bureaucratic culture filled with many PBS lifers and lack of connectedness to the outside world can keep things very traditional and stymied.

    Pros

    great history - possibility for accomplishing great things in nyc

    Cons

    still finding way back from bad leadership, concerns about finances of station

    Advice to Management

    Don't abandon WNET mission.- educational programming of lasting value. Most of budget now seems to go toward daily news programming with no shelf life and of questionable quality. Employees have been saying this for years, but leadership will not listen. Strange unrequested budget expenditures have also been made that have little impact on our audiences experience - at the expense of needed resources. Expensive new unfunded projects are started while established shows are cut and employees work overtime to put it all together. As these expenses rise, budgets for salaries and benefits are slashed. You are not creating an atmosphere where anyone would want to work.

    Pros

    People love the station, so at first it makes you feel like you're doing something quite noble.

    Cons

    There is very little room for opportunity. If you think that you can start in one department to get your foot in the door and move to another, I'd advise you to keep your search open. You can be stuck there for a very, very long time.
