    I worked at Gray Television

    Pros

    Room to gain experience for larger markets A foot in the door for local television Some benefits (health, dental) Possible overtime

    Cons

    VERY low compensation - think fast food wages Tons of responsibility Repetitive tasks Middle-management for the MCOs was overbearing and exhibited rampant favoritism Little opportunity for advancement within the same market Despite all of this, many of my co-workers really wanted to be there.

    I worked at Gray Television

    Pros

    When one actually does a good job, your peers and co-workers acknowledge it and are appreciative of the work being done.

    Cons

    Good work is ignored from supervisors and above, internal promotion is nearly impossible, long term growth does not exist as mid level employees are stagnant with no interest in self growth nor helping lower level employees to grow in other arenas.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to the annual reviews from the people at the bottom more than the people in the middle. Honesty was given from "entry level" workers who have been at the location for 2+ years.
