    Pros

    Looks good on a resume. Most of the people you work with are VERY nice. Some of the floors have been recently renovated and look good. Benefits are ok, especially for the industry. Generally regular hours (9-6)

    Cons

    Most workspaces are embarrassingly outdated with old equipment, it looks straight out of the 80s. Lots of beige fabric cubicles. Very low pay for most employees. A stingy company on a whole- someone else mentioned the disgusting boxed milk they stock. Bad drip coffee and Lipton tea is the extent of what is provided for employees. The company acts like they have no money when they are the #1 network.
    Noticed management often hiding information and being deceitful -nothing illegal, just petty. Not everyone who works there is conservative but it is still exhausting being surrounded by the rhetoric. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and work environment. You aren't broke anymore.

    No room for growth. Made it hard to get promoted. Everyone has been there a while with no one leaving anytime soon.
