    I have been working at WGBH full-time

    Pros

    WGBH is a vibrant company constantly working to make the work environment and the product better. I have complete faith in the upper management goal in creating the most thoughtful, high quality journalism and entertainment possible.

    Cons

    One of the issues that always comes up is communication. WGBH is a very diverse place and it's often hard to get people out of their "silos." There's a great deal of attention paid to this, and it's clear that upper management tries hard. But something is missing.

    Advice to Management

    Given the size of the organization, I know this isn't really possible, but I would love the ability to move around in the company and do different jobs. Another organization I worked with called this "on attachment." It kept long time staffers engaged and excited about their permanent jobs and potentially next role in the organization.
