    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

    The company has powerhouse brands.

    Cons

    The management in digital is not up to the task of moving the company into the future. Weak players are in key roles, and they are either making bad decisions or not making decisions at all. There's no vision and no plan. Scripps hasn't realized that digital companies must be a meritocracy, not a place for the comfortably mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the management in the digital department. The media business is in a meltdown and you've got the wrong people making important decisions that will affect the company's future.

    Pros

    Great brands, huge TV leadership position, scale in digital for food properties, belief in lifestyle audience.

    Cons

    Company moves slowly, leadership and much of organization has been here a very long time, across the board over 10 years, and there is a comfort level with how things have been done. As consumers change their media consumption habits, and digital time increases, there is a lot of change that will have to happen and it is disruptive.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the consumer, understand that s/he will go where s/he pleases, and make sure Scripps brands go there with her/him.
