    Mixed bag, but so is the rest of the industry

    Pros

    - Good benefits - Time off is split (Sick, Personal, and Vacation are all split up) - HR is generally quick to respond (there have been a lot of HR issues company-wide so they're on high alert at the moment) - Desperate for people, so you can leverage that for higher salaries.

    Cons

    - Vacation is accrued at 3.33 hours per pay period, 2 weeks, but you don't start with any vacation time (just give me 40 to start and still let me accrue) - Leadership is tone-deaf (company holidays make sense for sales but not for news departments) - Salary workers are abused, excessive on-call hours, and left to burn-out (NEVER TAKE SALARY WITH SINCLAIR THEY WILL ABUSE YOU) - Company politics are still the same (right-wing trumpism) - News Directors aren't incentivized to lead their newsrooms the way they know to do it -- they have to play ball or gtfo - They promote healthy mental health for employees but do nothing to ACTUALLY promote it - Corporate will take stories from local stations for syndication and then alter details - Corporate will take stories from local competitors and then SYNDICATE IT TO OUR WEBSITE, MAKING US LOOK STUPID
