I have been working at Graham Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits, education package and personal development.

Cons

Company is contracting in an effort to find good sales strategy in the face of government scrutiny. Must be top producer with verbal talent to survive in the sales division of the company. Slackers need not apply because you will get three strikes and your out. There are performance expectation for each term and if you miss three you are terminated.

Advice to Management

Be more honest in your conversations about expectations. People seem to believe there can be reprieve from termination is goal expectations are not met by intervention of management and that is not the case.

    I worked at Graham Holdings full-time

    Pros

    I worked in the TV division at KSAT in San Antonio. KSAT is a market leader and always drew in the best employees. I was impressed with their ability to attract talent across all the departments - sales, on air talent, engineers, producers. From a sales perspective, when you mentioned that you worked at KSAT, 95% would agree to meeting. The KSAT brand opened a lot of doors.

    Cons

    At the time they were still a legacy TV business, struggling to figure out how to stem losses from the TV side, while attempting to increase digital revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Overall the management team is excellent. There were a few managers who still believed in management by fear, but overall they have an excellent group and worked hard to train employees to better themselves.
