    Great Mission- Poor execution

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    With a mission as inspriring as GPB's, it's easy to look past some of its surface flaws- at least at first. That is until you realize they don't appreciate or look to develop up-and-coming talent and instead act as a retirement waiting room for post-CNN employees. Occasionally they'll make something worth watching or listening to, the trouble is that it's so interlaced with state politics it completely misses the mark on its core mission statement because of political glad-handing. It has essentially become a pass-through station that purchases content from other media outlets instead of developing local programming for a fraction of the cost. Why should people donate to a station that doesn't make anything new?

    Cons

    Don't expect to be fulfilled here if you're looking to create anything creative.

    Avoid It

    Pros

    There are great people there, but the problematic people keep getting promoted on the work of others, while good employees don’t get promotions and raises.

    Cons

    My manager said highly inappropriate things in a meeting, and when I tried to leave, he said he hadn’t dismissed me and the other man in the room didn’t have my back. It’s a sexist and misogynistic atmosphere.

    Chewed up and spit out

    Jan 2, 2021 - Manager, Broadcast Engineering in Atlanta, GA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    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 Most of the equipment was VERY outdated during my time there, continually breaking down and causing panicked situations; however, priority in spending limited resources seemed mainly focused on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.
