    Pros

    Excellent digital resources, management was very transparent and up front with sales team, good comp structure and bonuses

    Cons

    I didn't feel like there was a lot of upward mobility within the company, didn't feel like there was a progression plan for my career with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Help employees see their career path long term with the company to increase retention of top performers.

    Advice to Management

    We are growing and I am so excited about the new opportunities this will bring. I would love to see more opportunities pop up in the Austin and Dallas TX offices.

    Pros

    People at LIN really care about each other and go out of their way to help. In addition, the CEO is very competent and can be counted on to drive greater shareholder value overtime.

    Cons

    Linear TV will likely be disrupted by non-linear sources of video content or over the top services like HULU and Netflix. Although I expect that local TV will remain financially viable for a long time, growth is likely to become harder to come by. This may put pressure on costs and spur the company to cut jobs.

    Pros

    Overall company has a lot of great people working for KHON. Company has good benefits, matching 401k, monthly meetings where they update staff and provide lunch

    Cons

    Not enough of a team environment. Left hand does not talk to the right hand. A lot of "old timers" at station that have bad work ethic. Leader of organization is disconnected and does not have a vision.

    Advice to Management

    rebuild and listen to the employee's.

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Generous vacation. That's about it.

    Cons

    The corporate accounting department is a joke! The management is horrible. They are HUGE micro-managers! There is one manager that never seemed to do anything but sign her name. Another manager will bite your head off for breathing wrong let alone asking a question. She will give you an answer then belittle and yell when you do it. Then she will tell you to do it another way. Need to go to the restroom? Make it quick cause you are being timed! But if you smoke take as many long breaks as you want! I seriously felt chained to my desk! They are quick to point out mistakes (usually in front of your co-workers) and never give praise. Don't try to offer suggestions on how to improve cause it will be shot down quickly. They will beat you down until you hate coming to work.

    Advice to Management

    Come spend a couple days with the accounting department. Talk to the employees to see what really goes on. They would be shocked. A whole new management team is needed.

    Pros

    Fair pay, good benefits, flex time. (although I have heard flex time is only for employees they like, unfair practices are very common)

    Cons

    Threats of firing were constant to team if didn't meet goals. Retaliation was common for manager, very poor communication skills so it can be used against the employee. HR is useless since they side with Controller who has final word (and should retire) Once was a great place to work but as they expanded they no longer had the time nor concern for the employee's work environment - only the bottom line. Very backstabbing and sabotaging environment.

    Advice to Management

    Controller and business manager need to retire. Learn to tell the truth to employees. Stop the favoritism.
