    Pros

    I suppose one of the best things about working here is that public knows the name and on-air reputation of the company.
    And most of my coworkers are fabulous!

    Cons

    Management is poorly trained and has little respect for the masses. There is an obscenely high attrition rate - due to people quitting and being fired. Communication, if existent at all, is extremely poor. Promises are made; promises are broken.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you have risen in the ranks over time doesn't mean you are any good at managing people or projects. Perhaps you should get some training so you can be a halfway decent manager.
    Or perhaps you should just quit.

    Pros

    Great work environment, excellent employee morale, good high quality product compare to other media companies, great health care benefits, flexible work schedule. Like any other corporation, if you position yourself well, you can have great career opportunities.

    Cons

    Too many changes that don't make sense, sometimes they hired, and keep, inept upper management, used to be very secretive now is getting better but not ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for promotion
