      I worked at Gray Television part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great to work for to get foot in the door and they’re willing to hire freshly out of high school/college students with little to no experience

      Cons

      Pay is low, better to work elsewhere like fast food for higher pay.

      I have been working at Gray Television full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Willing to hire out of college with little to no experience. It's a good place to get your start, but that's about it.

      Cons

      Criminally low pay, horrible vacation schedule. The station that I work at is run down and everything breaks on an almost daily basis. Nothing is fixed permanently, basically just a band-aid is placed on it and that's expected to work. Every piece of equipment is outdated including the software. Management does not respect its employees. The station is always understaffed due to people leaving as soon as they can as a...

      Advice to Management

      Increase your workers' pay. People will be less wiling to leave the smaller stations if you offer them competitive wages. Get rid of the accumulated PTO system. Go back to a set number of vacation days. Offer sick days that don't use up your vacation time. Update your stations to current technology, renovate the buildings. Treat employees like they are people and not automatons. Don't yell at them when they make a mistake....

      I have been working at Gray Television full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Willing to hire people right out of college. Great opportunities to try new things in broadcasting. Access to some of the latest technology in news information gathering.

      Cons

      Extremely low pay. Constantly increasing work load expectations without increasing pay. Cheap. Never willing to fix or replace broken equipment without making a huge fuss. Very little vacation time.... did I mention the extremely low pay?

      Advice to Management

      Management doesn't care about the wants and needs of their employees, because if you make too much of a fuss, they will get rid of you and hire somebody for cheaper. My advice to management would be, how about starting people off with a living wage? This is why you keep on losing reporters and anchors to other stations. Of course why do you care? All you care about is your bottom line. My advice to people considering...
