Pros

Associating with a superior product feels good, and people in the area (over age 30) will know of your presence in the media community.

Cons

Very few management possibilities exist because those who occupy the very few management positions protect their jobs from intrusion. It creates a "inside" political structure that can get vicious, and is certainly unrewarding to those who focus on doing their jobs well. You are likely to be most rewarded if you protect your bosses back, even if that means doing nothing else.

Advice to Management

A house cleaning might work well for you... move out those who are simply protecting their turf, and move in those who seem to actually want to accomplish something.

    Pros

    * Collegial atmosphere, mutually supportive and cooperative * Civility a hallmark of personal and professional interactions * Clear direction and relevant, useful feedback from management * Appropriate delegation * Resources available when required to complete assignments

    Cons

    * Career advancement slow or non-existent * Salaries low compared to for-profit companies * Ratio of managers to worker bees upside down * Preponderance of males in positions of authority, females in subordinate positions

    Advice to Management

    There is very little fat in lower paid staff positions, but a great deal in higher paid management positions. Recommend review and consolidation of management responsibilities.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, negative attitude toward women, significant glass ceiling, no career advancement possible, substandard management, no leadership or vision

    Advice to Management

    Where is the leadership? Where is the vision?
