    Pros

    Good company with quality programming. More interesting work than in many companies and it can be exciting.

    Cons

    No room to move up in the company, and they need to hire more workers to lessen the strain. Low pay because of its non-profit status. Age division.

    Advice to Management

    Arrange community building events to increase morale.

    Pros

    There are some pretty nice people here and the viewers mostly appreciate the channel very much! When you tell people where you work they think its really cool and tell you their favorite programs.

    Cons

    There is very little room for growth or movement here, especially for more entry-level jobs. If you're young and just looking for work while you get your life together, I'd recommend another company unless you're in a position directly related to your career goals. The departments are small and it's very hard to move from one to another if that's your plan. The departments are also quite understaffed so be prepared to do the job of at least 2 people (since 2 people probably DID do your job before the recession). You may be excited and passionate at first but that will die quickly once overwork, underpay and supervisory bureaucracy settle overpowers it. Again, there are much worse places out there, but it's disappointing how unfulfilling working for "viewers like you" can be.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities for growth and learning. Many jobs can plateau very quickly...

    The only con about working at WNET is that you won't get paid as much as you would in a private network.

    Pros

    Great salary, great benefits, GREAT people and a casual environment. Generally understanding when it comes to work-life balance

    Cons

    A bit of a large bureaucracy. Hard to get anything done because of outdated systems and not a lot of money to put into improvement of non-essential functions.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in infrastructure, systems etc. to help people get their work done.
