    Pros

    Ill say this varies station by station and Ive worked for two now. Ive been lucky enough to have two amazing news directors. With smaller stations you get the benefit of tight nit crews and extra attention. In the bigger station you have more resources and learn from people who have been in the business a long time.

    Cons

    With the small stations pay is god awful but you have to start somewhere!

    Pros

    In my time, I’ve consistently worked with good people who have taught me a lot about the industry and have have the opportunity to grow my skill set and become a newsroom leader quickly.

    Cons

    Gray TV stations I have worked for have consistently underpaid employees while pushing them to take on more and more responsibilities and accept uncomfortable work hours.

    Pros

    Very happy I made the switch to television, not sure why I didn't do it sooner. Gray is a strong company, and my local station management is amazing. I've been in sales my whole life, I'm a professional and get treated as such. No micromanaging, but plenty of support when I ask for it.

    Cons

    Health benefits are average at best, and not what I would expect of a company this size. Also very backwards on PTO, so keep that in mind if you're interviewing, and remember to negotiate something reasonable from the start.
