    I have been working at KQED full-time

    Pros

    Great teamwork and motivation. Everyone wants to be there and have a passion for what they do. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Sure there are not many start-up like fancy perks like dry cleaning and on-campus yoga, but the organization aligns themselves with intelligent people. I would say the biggest con is the office look and the dated feel.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up that motivating teamwork and transparent style!

    Interview

    The interview process was incredibly professional and well-organized. I found HR to be communicative throughout the entire process, responding quickly to my inquiries and reaching out to me promptly to schedule the in-person interview and to follow up with decision-making. Through this interview process, I achieved a more holistic view of what the position I applied for entails. I was also able to gauge work culture and environment through my communications with HR and staff. Overall, I found the process to be incredibly streamlined and efficient. I was never made to feel like I was ignorant of the timeline or what the process would be.
