Pros

To gain experience and move onto a real media firm with an actual real salary, assistants and research personal are paid 25,000. That is less than any other assistants or research, at the station, network, cable or independent firms.

Cons

Hours, workload, respect, pay, the usual time frame for employees is less than one year. Most of the good ones either move to cable, the station or an agency.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to fight other firms for stations by under cutting each other to stay alive, rather try to devote some expenses to R&D... that is why cable companies are more recession proof, they actual have services as opposed to rep firms who do nothing but order take for the station.

    Pros

    Good benefits, you learn how the industry works, you can make connections at ad agencies, good location downtown, flexibility with vacations/time off. They offer online courses to help with aspects of your job, but you're usually so busy you have to do these courses on your own time.

    Cons

    You're always busy doing the same tasks over and over again, it's a glorified data entry job, tensions are always high, unfriendly work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Make the job more rewarding with creative contests or team-building outings. We don't just want to feel like a robot, we want the opportunity to learn and grow in our careers.
