    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PBS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you're f/t contract, you should do fine (great pay, many great people, and you can easily move on when you've had enough).

    Cons

    Some of the people were not so sane, incl my boss. Pay is terrible if you're a regular f/t employee.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of how your directors are leading departments. If you want stellar professionals -- and esp stellar professionals at non-profit salaries -- you have to provide a stellar and truly professional work environment. Else you will lose every one of us that signed on with you because we were idealistic and optimistic about the mission of PBS.
