Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Salaries are competitve to good, when you're hired full-time; company too often hires freelancers on a day-rate to save money. There is a certain prestige still associated with the network, but more to outsiders than those within the buildings.

Cons

capricious management, little options for growth. In recent years, the company has lost sight of its news focus and, in panic, rushed to make seriously damaging decisions in its newsrooms. I dream of the days when there was mutual respect between management and staff. It is virtually impossible to find now. Employees are terminated without cause, on a whim, without notice, making the level of anxiety and paranoia very high. The atmosphere is tense and often confrontational.

Advice to Management

Respect employees, value their contributions, realize that long term employees have much to offer the company

    I worked at NBC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Collegial work environment, great benefits, ample opportunity for career advancement.

    Cons

    Just the medium itself--the limitations of profit-driven television news at a time when other avenues can do it better and cheaper.
