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 ManagementAdvice

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.
