    I have been working at Cox Media Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some people care about your wellbeing. Others, not so much. They take care of you during severe weather, but you're still forced to work 12+ hours.

    Cons

    It's challenging. You must know what you're doing in order to jump right in. They'll throw you in and either you sink or you swim. Hours are never consistent. You won't know your schedule looks like in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Producers are just as valuable as reporters. We should get cool gear like rain jackets as well. Without your producers, the show won't go on. Show us your appreciation.
