Lacking direction at the executive leadership leel

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at WFLA-TV

ProsGreat facility, some solid, long term employees. A great location right in downtown Tampa, walking distance to the Tampa Bay Times Forum

ConsSignificant lack of organizational direction and leadership. A lack of corporate resources to be competitive in the Tampa market. The station is woefully underfunded to be competitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire someone competent, with solid, large market experience to run the station. There is unlimited potential for growth. they just need a capable leader and resources.

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

Run, don't walk away

Director (Former Employee)
Tampa, FL

I worked at WFLA-TV

ProsBest reason to work here would be the people (other than management) .. mostly solid, good folk who work hard (and play hard) as a team.

ConsCons are management incompetence, management stupidity, management laziness, and, well, also the corporate overlords are completely clueless. Did I mention the problems with the management team?

Advice to Senior ManagementLet the people do their jobs. You hired them based upon SOME compelling reason ... so let's go ahead and assume that they know what they are doing. Really.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
