    I worked at Tennis Channel

    Pros

    None. Absolutely nothing. Nada. Zip.

    Cons

    Everything. 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 ManagementAdvice

    Company 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.

    I have been working at Tennis Channel full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Advised 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 ManagementAdvice

    Start to care about the people who care about your company.

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

    I have been working at Tennis Channel

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Independent 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes the people at "the bottom" have the most perspective and valuable insights about things. Listen up!
