      Pros

      -Appreciate experience above everything else. -Disney perks(great if you're located n FL or CA)

      Cons

      -Everything in the NY building feels like it's stuck in the 1990s. -Most benefits are great if you're CA or FL but f you're in NY it's just the standard stuff. -Computers are old, PCs for everything. -Hours are insane, but news are like that everywhere. -ERGs are a joke -Not very diverse

      Pros

      You get to tell people you work here

      Cons

      - Talent is wretched and treats people like slaves - No punishment for bad talent behavior - Person leading the newsroom lacks any journalism experience - New President says she wants change, but it has gotten worse since she arrived with EPs scurrying to secure top roles - Reorgs almost every year to benefit top management - HR works for the company to protect the company from people who figured out the bs - HR will only listen when they want to fire someone - Senior Producers and EPs on GMA are verbally abusive - Backstabbing - Promoting people to talent roles bc they know how to read words on a screen, no real journalist among them.
