    Pros

    Multicultural. Challenging but rewarding work environment. Good benefits. The new management is trying to bring about positive changes but the jury is out.

    Cons

    Slow to change. Bureaucratic. Outdated infrastructure. Large language services get all the resources while smaller ones suffer. Some mid-level managers are clueless and incompetent, going out of their way to keep their superiors happy at the expense of employees. Promotion within language services is almost impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop introducing new programs, fix the ones we already have. Dispose of illiterate managers who cannot even write in English. Let's stop doing too much with too little.

    Broadcaster/Producer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Voice of America (Washington, DC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was through an employee referral. I got a call after the referral and spoke to 3 different people before an in person interview was scheduled.
    The actual interview took a full day, with a translation portion, on air interview, broadcast reading, 1:1 and then a panel. It was hard but probably the most interview experience that I've had because I actually felt challenged. I left on an adrenaline high
