    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Hours are never consistent, even on odd hours working in news

    Advice to Management

    News is not more important than family. (People have missed funerals, births, weddings because of management)

    Pros

    Decent pay for coordinator job. Really good benefit package. Will cover some expenses for school, good place to learn media on a multiple platform.

    Cons

    Environment is negative and very isolating, Management is very out of touch with what happens at their stations. Little room for growth and you are told that there is no opportunity for promotion in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people in entry level roles. Stop making everything easy for AdOps and start enforcing policies that are more client friendly.

    Pay isn't bad, benefit package is great.

    Negative environment. Corporate is really out of touch with it's local stations.

    Advice to Management

    Just because it works for corporate, doesn't mean it works for your stations.

    Pros

    PTO given, flexibility. That's the only pro to this company.

    Cons

    This was the most negative, soul sucking place I've ever worked for. They hire clients sons and daughters and give them promotions, when they have no knowledge. They are very fake and money focused. The HR can not be trusted. Don't do it. Wasted 2 years of my life there being miserable.

    Pros

    Great company values, top execs seem like good guys - but not a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Across the board, stations are asked to do too much with not enough resources.

    Pros

    Most of my co-workers are great and have become lifelong friends even outside of the workplace. Those people are what make going to work every day worth it. I "still" love what I do and for the most part, enjoy who I'm doing it with/for. Scripps is a respected company in the industry.

    Cons

    I haven't had anything resembling a good benefits pkg since my last employer. I don't necessarily blame the company for that. I think it's the way things are going these days. Working in a dept. that is consistently short-staffed, becomes a problem when asking for time-off. The morale has taken a nose dive in the past 12 to 18 months. Visible by bouts of mass exedous of people.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management: never lie to a future employee. The truth has a funny way of being revealed. . The company, by and large, touts itself as one putting employees first, promoting from within, professional growth, etc.... Anyone who's been around long enough can see that is absolute garbage. Just in the past year alone I've see a half-dozen well qualified internal candidates be "overlooked" while position after position was filled from outside the company. Hard work is not rewarded, for everone. It is rewarded for the "chosen" few.

    Pros

    The worker-bees are the ones who make this company. They treat you like family and are always eager to help when needed. I was one of the fortunate ones that had the opportunity to move up. If you like working at a fast-pace with little down time, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    You do your job, make the sale, beat the deadline yet rarely do you receive praise from the higher ups. If you do, it is short lived. Always asking for more with less and fewer to do the work. Upper management does keep the ones beneath them in the dark.
