I have been working at PBS part-time (More than a year)

Pros

flexible hours, great training, volunteers opportunities, open communication with general manager, great place to grow if you are entry level

Cons

part time hours, no room for advancement if you miss your opportunity it could be years before anything would come up again.

Advice to Management

Continue to talk with your employees and open discussion for younger programming

    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.
