      Pros

      The people there are all whip smart, and in my experience, were always helpful to growing your career.

      Cons

      It can be hard to climb the ladder there without switching shows; also there’s a high degree of nepotism

      Pros

      It's like a family. The people are great.

      Cons

      The network is severely understaffed and salaries for those who are there are comparatively very low. The work requires being present and on call all the time. Most staffers are locked into long contracts. No raises during contracts. The future isn't very bright.
