    I worked at Gray Television part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good leadership in the newsroom, ND and Asst. ND were very involved and supportive of the staff.

    Cons

    Notre Dame is all that mattered. Seemed like PR arm of university. Dated equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Put more money into the technology, competitor was tapeless and high definition in the field while we were up converting off of tape using technology from the 90's. Please invest more money in your on-air product and equipment in the field. Felt hindered by the old, outdated cameras, editing system and workflow.

    I have been working at Gray Television full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Our station hires lots of young people right out of school. It’s good to be able to help them learn and start a career. If you participate the corporate office has monthly challenges and programs to win prizes and nominate coworkers for prizes. Long time employees get a good amount of time off/pto. Excellent 401k match.

    Cons

    We have lots of turnover because people want to learn from us then to a bigger market. The TV business can mean you have to work irregular hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep having the monthly programs it helps morale. Lower the monthly medical insurance costs if you can.
