    I have been working at Georgia Public Broadcasting as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great work place. Coworkers are warm.

    Cons

    Dead broke. There isn't a lot of money and the company needs to change with the times. The fact that it takes 5 meetings and 6 months to get approval for a meeting on a subject is killing the brand from the inside out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new blood as advisors. Think digital first.

    I worked at Georgia Public Broadcasting as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    This place has dozens of studios.
    They may have more Studios than Turner.
    They have huge budgets for certain shows.

    Cons

    They hate to hire people Full Time.
    Massive lay-offs every few years.
    Empty Studios with no Production Staff. They don't hire Production Staff Full Time.
    If you want to be a Consultant they expect you to help the Pledge Drive which you work for free.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what it takes to hire a Full Time Production Staff.

    I worked at Georgia Public Broadcasting full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to work on live shows in every facet imaginable: Camera people to editors to on-air talent can "cut their teeth" at this station.

    Cons

    Inter-department conflicts need to get resolved. One department is not more important/better than the other. Need to work together as a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure leaders are team players with other leaders - this will trickle down to the rest of the employees.

    I worked at Georgia Public Broadcasting as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Laid back work environment, employees are all very nice

    Cons

    Lots of employees do the bare minimum or rely on others to do all the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more between departments! Poor communication seems to be the biggest issue and no one wants to do anything about it

    Pros

    Strong family of employees that are very welcoming and a pleasure to work with. Excellent access to professional equipment and extremely knowledgeable crew of production employees.

    Cons

    Can't think of a single downside to working at Georgia Public broadcasting. It is tough having a tight budget but that is part of being a government television affiliate.

    Pros

    PBS affiliate which means it's a great product. Creative jobs can be rewarding there but business support is treacherous.

    Cons

    Poorly managed business support departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to get to know your employees.

    I have been working at Georgia Public Broadcasting

    Pros

    Great brand. People respect PBS. New leadership has turned the place upside down, which is probably overdue. But local production has been de-emphasized and people who remain are scared.

    Cons

    Not a lot of communication about what's to come, so people don't know what to expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency.
