    Pros

    Everyone works there seem to share the same passion for food, home, and travel, which is the company's strength area.

    Cons

    Ratings have slipped and growth has slowed due to less people watching the Food Network and HGTV shows

    Advice to Management

    Need to figure out new business model to compensate for the decrease in viewership and ratings (in lifestyle content in general) due to cord-cutting.

    Pros

    Great exposure to senior level management, tight knit group of outgoing and caring employees, ability to work from home, work/life balance is outstanding. Excellent brands to represent with strong understanding of who they are.

    Cons

    No formal training program for new hires and limited opportunity for growth/movement. A large number of employees and management have been with the company for a very long time and change happens slowly.

    Pros

    Great, talented and caring people. Consistent hours with little over time which leaves room for a work-life balance. It is a great company that provides excellent benefits overall...

    Cons

    I felt like there was very little room for growth internally. Management and overall structure is vastly different now due to a company-wide reorganization. It used to be such a great place and it seems like it still is but it's not like before.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have much advice to offer the management team. I respect the decisions they make and feel that they have good reasons for handling the company policies appropriately. . .

    Pros

    Wonderful exciting dynamic and forward thinking workplace.

    Cons

    I found it difficult to get a clear picture of how best to posit my case for advancement in the workplace. I very much would have like to stay on as a permanent employee but was at a loss as to hot to present this, let alone who to present my feelings to, exactly..

    Advice to Management

    More clarity and a better overview of how each dept. functions in relation to the others.

    Pros

    Our brands are loved by millions of consumers and your work is often viewed by a huge audience. The pay and benefits are terrific, especially for the area. Most importantly, SNI has a family-friendly working environment so there's a true notion of work/life balance. This is the best company to work for in Knoxville, for sure.

    Cons

    There seems to be some attrition lately, with a lot of talented people leaving and some not-so-talented people hanging around perhaps too long.

    Advice to Management

    Please evangelize the company's future goals and strategy.

    Pros

    As far as corporations go, SNI is still ahead of the game, but it has changed.

    Cons

    It is not the same place it was 5-7 years ago. It has become too beholden to profit margin. Employees are just a commodity now, and there is no longer the loyalty there once was.

    Advice to Management

    Quite managing out of panic and worrying about your golden parachute. Lead.

    Pros

    Nothing stands out, average company to work for

    Cons

    No tech culture, I was an aqcui-hire from a San Francisco tech company and as soon as the integration started the tech culture was destroyed. Unclear business model and lack of leadership and vision for the digital arm of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Inspire innovation and invest in people competitively like other tech companies in SF
