    Great senior management. Mid level managers are just firefighters

    Pros

    All around pleasant work environment. People are all helpful and positive. No inter departmental bickering. Everyone works together as a team.

    Cons

    Sometimes baffling hiring choices lead to people who should not be there getting jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency from mid level managers

    Poisonous work environment where employees are intimidated into saying 'WDRB' is a good place to work. Look into it.

    Pros

    There are some talented, good hearted people here.

    Cons

    Low pay, no bonuses, decreasing benefits. The cars in the employee parking lot speak volumes about the lifestyles of the employees. From the top down, the old school, unconscious leadership style does not consider the needs of the employees. Very negative, frustrating atmosphere in most departments company-wide. Racial, homophobic and sexually inappropriate jokes are accepted as commonplace. There is a culture of backstabbing and 'reporting' on each other to keep everyone in fear and in line. There is no interest in employee feedback, constructive criticism or freedom to make a complaint. Seriously take the time to 'off the record' talk to the employees if you are thinking of working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It cannot feel good to be in management for this company. Speak up. Do the right thing.

    I worked at WDRB FOX 41 part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The team in almost every department has a synthesis and professionalism that shows based upon the happiness and productivity of its employees.

    Cons

    Part-time employees get the short end of the stick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer full time openings to long time part timers. There is real talent employed within your own ranks.

    Pros

    I would say it was a very postive experience for the most part. Good General Manager.

    Cons

    High paced very stressful environment. I really don't have anything negative to say other than the pay is lower than expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real advice, the management is exceptional and lead in a manner conducive to all involved. Upper management is exceptional
