    I worked at Hearst Television full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Charlotte is the Hub for all of the Hearst stations' traffic departments. The best part was being surrounded by like minded people who only handled traffic. It was also wonderful to work with all of the stations in various states. Hearst Corporate management were very approachable and down to earth.

    Cons

    Poor training, people being hired with no experience, disconnect between the Hub and the stations, incompetent people being promoted into Assistant Manager positions resulting in a toxic work environment.

    Pros

    Outstanding company that has a cutting edge, diverse, and well funded base. Best of breed products, and continuously investing in new businesses.

    Cons

    Local Management is out of touch with the staff. A lack of focus on the employees needs, and a system designed for constant replacement of many of the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Put a higher salary base in the local budget, so that employees will consider a career and not a job.

    Pros

    Nice office, friendly co-workers, people work very hard

    Cons

    pay is very low for the expectations of you. Systems are horribly slow. Way too much work for the pay. You could work 23 hrs per day and not get done what they expect and get paid on the low end of an AE in KC across the stations. Have non compete so cant go anywhere else to earn a living. Modern advancements in field come slow. All competitors have the newer products before we do.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more. get rid of the stupid non-compete.
