No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The mission is impeccable, you can feel great about the work you do, and there are some amazing people pouring their hearts into this company.

Cons

The upper management is not as good as could be; tight budgets and constant political threat keep PBS from growing as well as it could.

Advice to Management

Keep focused on people who share the vision of the mission. The issues PBS faces are not about being more corporate; they are about how best to serve people with educational and cultural media in the 21st Century.
