    I worked at Georgia Public Broadcasting full-time

    Pros

    Experience, networking company benefits.

    Cons

    Discriminatory practices. You have to know someone in state government to move up the food chain. If you don't, you should not expect move to a higher position.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    * Great starting place for entry level workers and students/interns.
    * Opportunities to try a lot of different things.
    * Incredibly talented, often self-managing and self-motivating, co-workers.
    * Health benefits

    Cons

    * Heavy on the upper management side.
    * High turnover rates, ill defined job responsibilities, untrained management staff, lack of strategic direction
    * Increasing expectations and demand for fast, high quality output amid dwindling staff.
    * Open office/workspace model has created unnecessary frustration and constant distractions for everyone.
    * Below average pay for anyone not in an executive position.
    * No clear path for promotion.
    * Very little value placed on long term/loyal employees. New employees notice and leave as soon as they arrive.

    Advice to Management

    People leave because they know they can not affect change. It has to start at the top. Pay attention and get to know the people who work for you. There are always specific reasons good employees chose to work elsewhere and those reasons are usually ignored.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Georgia Public Broadcasting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to work on live shows in every facet imaginable: Camera people to editors to on-air talent can "cut their teeth" at this station.

    Cons

    Inter-department conflicts need to get resolved. One department is not more important/better than the other. Need to work together as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure leaders are team players with other leaders - this will trickle down to the rest of the employees.

    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.

    PBS affiliate which means it's a great product. Creative jobs can be rewarding there but business support is treacherous.

    Poorly managed business support departments.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to get to know your employees.

    Pros

    Great brand. People respect PBS. New leadership has turned the place upside down, which is probably overdue. But local production has been de-emphasized and people who remain are scared.

    Cons

    Not a lot of communication about what's to come, so people don't know what to expect.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency.

    Pros

    Small organization with opportunities to cross train in many different positions.
    Great place to work, proud to be provide a service to members statewide.

    Cons

    A consistant change in leadership, which comes with many changes in the direction of the organization. This leads to no direction during transition.

    Advice to Management

    Allow each department to develop through the collaboration of other departments. Focus on making every production a team effort with contributions from every department.
