    I have been working at Sinclair Broadcast Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really nice benefits (2 weeks paid vacation after 6 months, 3 weeks after 3 years, and 4 weeks after 10 years, LOTS of health care options), a positive environment, an emphasis on innovation and creativity (especially in creative services), a good work/life balance, constant effort (at least since I've started) of trying to improve the work environment, an open door policy throughout the whole company

    Cons

    Probably for where I am right now, there aren't going to be many opportunities for promotions unless I'm willing to move (but they do annual raises so it may not be a big deal!).

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and adapting to what employees ask for. Generally, I think the management I'm under does a pretty great job at communicating and being helpful!
