    Pros

    Strong family of employees that are very welcoming and a pleasure to work with. Excellent access to professional equipment and extremely knowledgeable crew of production employees.

    Cons

    Can't think of a single downside to working at Georgia Public broadcasting. It is tough having a tight budget but that is part of being a government television affiliate.

    Chewed up and spit out

    Pros

    Because you will no longer have time for a social life, you'll be highly motivated to begin setting extra money aside to aid in your escape. The workers on my team were fully committed and nice to work with.

    Cons

    My position had been advertised as Monday - Friday, 40 hours a weeks. However, as a salaried employee for over 4 years, I routinely worked 50-60 hour weeks, including weekends and holidays, but there was no additional compensation. Any expression of appreciation for workers to turn their lives upside down to meet their expectations is just lip service. Instead, unrealistic demands and expectations continue to pile up. The company is too top heavy. Management keeps creating fake new VP levels, who spend too much time in meetings. Lower level, rank and file employees are treated as chattel. Executive staff is clueless to the magnitude of the technical problems. Most of the equipment was VERY outdated during my time there, continually breaking down and causing panicked situations; however, priority in spending limited resources seemed mainly focused on purchasing new furnishings, ceiling paint, and egocentric desires. Upper management plays favorites and overlooks top performers, causing some of the best talent to leave. Constant restructuring! Teams are understandably dejected and exhausted. Zero work/life balance. The CEO would decide on a whim, the day before a national holiday (i.e., Thanksgiving) to make employees come in and run yet another fund raiser. Salary is not competitive. Upper management is not supportive, and is secretive in their communication efforts. A lot of distrust, frustration, and anger. Toxic work environment. It is a sinking ship.

    Pros

    Public media draws people who really believe in what they do. "Passion" can be an over-used buzz word. It truly defines public media supporters.

    Cons

    State government entity, so that brings with it sometimes slow and clunky processes.
