    I have been working at WFLA-TV

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Significant 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire 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.

    corporate and local management need great improvement. They are going through trying times but have not appreciated the employees sacrifices.

    please make more effort to appreciate your employees efforts and sacrifices. Special attention to long time employees would be nice.

    I worked at WFLA-TV

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Cons 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 ManagementAdvice

    Let 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.
