    It is what you would expect

    Sep 26, 2017 - Producer in Washington, DC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Gives plenty of opportunities for entry/mid-level employees to gain experience. Self-starters can thrive. High turnover means your professional network gets pretty big pretty quick. Were very accommodating and understanding of a medical issue I had that required several weeks out of the office.

    Cons

    Low pay (even for tv news standards) Be ready to have your vacation request turned down. They even turned down a shift switch that I arranged so I could move into my new apartment because 'it would set a precedent.' Workplace culture is toxic. They know they can treat you like a mark on a spreadsheet because there will be someone out there happy to replace you. Managers more interested in filling a staffing sheet than fostering talent. Terrible work/life balance but that comes with the industry.

    Good Job but Management isn't great

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There's a lot of opportunity to be had, if you're willing to work hard. If you ask for more work, you will get more work and many colleagues end up being wonderful friends.

    Cons

    The pay is staggeringly low and there are no bonuses or other extras. Also, they expect you to be 100% committed to your blackberry - like even while you sleep - so that people will complain you didn't answer an email at 3am. Management tends to stick together and promote only their friends, making it tough for others to break through.
