    OK place to work, but not great.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood snacks, benefits, and pretty laid back environment

    ConsJob growth/upward mobility opportunities, office politics and clicks

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nothing to Love-30 about this place.

    (Former Employee)

    ProsNone. Absolutely nothing. Nada. Zip.

    ConsEverything. Lack of leadership, responsibility. Excess of nepotism whether it be friend or family, excessive spending and salaries for executives. No synergy between departments, no communication between departments. It was like high school there with all the cliques and various "factions". No one worked together, everyone worked against each other. The company could have been so much more, but executives in leading roles with no experience but have a relationship with the CEO or upper management has brought down the company's potential.

    I am truly ashamed to say I worked there. My morality and ethics was tested on many an occasion. I really have nothing positive to say about the company or any particular department there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany needs to clean house and bring in people who know how to run a network, are familiar with programming, production, legal, etc. and who are willing to make changes for the better of the network versus lying stagnant or what fills the pockets of upper management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    What should be a fun job and a fun place to work, isn't

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSalaries are competitive. Smaller organization provides opportunity to contribute and have an impact.

    ConsThere are a few, senior people who literally suck the living fun out of the culture AND top management not only lets them but seems to approve of it. On top of this, small independent cable channels are quickly becoming extinct. The ice-age is upon the tennis channel, there is no upside.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Would give less than a star if I could.

    Associate (Current Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsGood location, some good people (that were also let go), easy work.

    ConsAdvised me against taking time off to go to a funeral, no trust, lied about the length of the job, too cheap to give benefits, awful leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart to care about the people who care about your company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    On the surface everything appears idyllic, scratch the surface and you will see the major flaws.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsPay is competitive, locations are convenient, some employees are pleasant.

    ConsIndependent cable TV channels are like dinosaurs in today's media landscape, especially ones that don't own the rights to any of their programming. Eventually the channel will be sold, without generating the upside everyone had hoped for. The Tennis Channel is a disappointment, not only for investors but employees too.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent

    Legal Assistant (Current Employee)
    Santa Monica, CA

    ProsIt is a casual corporate culture.

    ConsThe environment is very political.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes the people at "the bottom" have the most perspective and valuable insights about things. Listen up!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
