    No cons, again, great place to work. People are smart, driven, and believe in the company. In recent years a lot of smart decisions have been made that have provided rapid growth and the #1 network on TV.

    Pros

    This was one of my first internships during college. My boss was really laid back, welcoming & gave me a lot of responsibility which was awesome.

    Cons

    I didn't meet a lot of people outside of my department. We kept to ourselves in our immediate one.

    Cons

    Competitive, long hours and weekends sometimes.

    Network, network, network because as an Intern you are only there a short time so if you want a job there you have to meet the right people.

    Pros

    Well established in the industry, great upper management working on improving the old school mentality. Great opportunity to move skills between different business units due to the structure of the company.

    Cons

    Old management was set on their ways too much. Looks like the new team is working on changing that for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Question everything and look into the answers.
