    Pros

    You learn how to run your station. Then there is the constant Criticism and you never hear Job well done in a way that feels real it’s so fake. You do hear how bad your doing in a way that’s really and deflating.

    Cons

    Executive managers drink on the job. Always out late in the night club and around town. They spend time at the local club watching team members dance on the stage the throw tips This team is an old style yell and scream Mangement style. From high level Corp staff to the the existing on property executive staff the jobs here are more like an obstacle course.

    Advice to Management

    The HR department says they have an open door policy and they don’t everybody is related to others and nobody wants to complain.
