Pros

Smart people with good intentions who are there because they love public broadcasting and are proud of the excellent work they do with limited resources.

Cons

Limited resources, bureaucratic culture filled with many PBS lifers and lack of connectedness to the outside world can keep things very traditional and stymied.

    Advice to Management

    Don't abandon WNET mission.- educational programming of lasting value. Most of budget now seems to go toward daily news programming with no shelf life and of questionable quality. Employees have been saying this for years, but leadership will not listen. Strange unrequested budget expenditures have also been made that have little impact on our audiences experience - at the expense of needed resources. Expensive new unfunded projects are started while established shows are cut and employees work overtime to put it all together. As these expenses rise, budgets for salaries and benefits are slashed. You are not creating an atmosphere where anyone would want to work.
