    The only Asian American cable network in the U.S. run by a white guy.

    Pros

    A vain hope in creating an Asian American media giant in the U.S. In the first two years, the company created excitement and media buzz, although it spread itself too thin, Mike Hong was a charismatic leader, lacking experience perhaps but making up for it with his ability to inspire and lead staff with a vision for the future. Unfortunately, the new COO, Ed Lee was a micromanaging dolt with no clues as to how to operate a media company.

    Cons

    Crushed hopes in creating an Asian American media giant in the U.S. Low pay and lack of honest communication from Senior Management. With Mike Hong's departure from the company in 2007, it became abundantly clear that CEO and COO were hopelessly out of their league, having not a clue as to how to run a media company, let alone running any company in any industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honesty and open communication would help, but there is no one left in the ranks in the Senior Management with an iota of honesty or integrity. Having not enough funds should never be a reason to lie to employees, partners and investors.

    Pros

    You work for a small start up where your work is important and you help build a positive image of the Pan Asian Community

    Cons

    Your check may be delayed from 2 weeks up to a month, mismanagement anyone?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There were some good ideas, but I think they over-lapped and too much tried to be accomplished too soon. Was there really a need for a Theater, Radio station and online magazine at the same time when you barely have enough resources to keep up with the companies main function - the programming?
    Just sell the company and stop dragging your employees along for the ride with false promises of deals and contracts that never go through.

    Pros

    Young, dynamic people, pan-Asian and multiethnic. The atmosphere is light and fun, people treat each other very well. Good work environment. They are constantly breaking new ground with programming, and serving a grossly underserved community in the US. employees are very passionate about the mission of the company.

    Cons

    Management keeps their cards close to chest, you need to talk to people who have been there for a while but aren't VPs or higher to get the "real story."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open with employees about what is going on, they will respect you for it, and will likely find out anyway.
