I worked at Kgo Television full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Wonderful opportunities for learning and growth. Some incredibly talented and intelligent individuals to work with.
Cons – Very little room for advancement. Lack of communication and a tendency toward too much office politics sometimes created a toxic work environment and contributed to the distraction of the work at hand.
Advice to Senior Management – Create an environment of constructive criticism and growth rather then gossip and trash talking.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Kgo Television full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – Creative work in one of the biggest news markets in the country
Cons – They give no perks, incentives and rarely any positive feedback. You have to work holidays, they move your schedule around without asking. The newsroom is full of unhappy people who have worked there for too long.
Advice to Senior Management – Add fun to the work environment. Little things will go a long way. There is too much strife between current managers that sets the tone for the newsroom.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Kgo Television
Pros – Great benefits include health, dental, vision, 401k, commute assistance, limited free parking if you're one of the lucky ones, high status within tv community,
Cons – Corporate downsizing takes place here too. everyone working three jobs for less pay. union membership strongly discourages as they offer significant raises for people to sign away their job security. If you are a union member your chances of infiltrating a non-union dept is zero.
Advice to Senior Management – offer the same opportunities to ALL employees, not just toss them a free class and then no follow up. you never know what department your star talent currently languishes in. Take some chances and get up to speed with the high tech community surrounding you. programming is too safe. jobs too heavily defined.
