    I worked at GEO TV full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The management does not micromanage, they just throw you in the deep end and expect you to find your own way. Some people might not like that but I did since it gave me an opportunity to figure things out my own way.

    Cons

    There are too many people hired so a lot of times you end u sitting on your behind with not much to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not overhire and only have enough people on staff that are needed to do the job at hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Anti-Racism should be removed from an environment where you are responsible for major acts of awareness.if you yourself cant clean the mess inside you cant get them to clean it from there sides as well.... Non locals are adjusted to local seats while locals are rejected on Racism for even minor positions only a few are working in their own lands while rest are those who don't deserve what they are given.
