    Pros

    Loved working in a newsroom. KSTP is the station that truly values news the most in the MSP market. If you like news, you'll like working here.

    Cons

    Super stressful at times, and not much opportunity for advancement. That's the nature of the business though, especially with the stress.

    I have been working at Hubbard Broadcasting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have probably the best health insurance options that I have ever had so there's that! Also there's a cafeteria on site so that's a plus. Also nice is that it's right on the green lines you can go downtown and not have to worry about your car I guess...
    Also cool that Mr. Hubbard is always at the building and even walks thru and wishes the employees happy holidays! How many billionaires do you get to talk to on the regular?

    Cons

    There is definitely favorites and there is also a disconnect between management and the assistants that lets face it makes the television world go round...I would also say that for technology Industry they are behind in the times when in comes to phones and computers

    Advice to Management

    f you want to keep employees and keep them happy don't overwork them and don't pay them peanuts when they are the ones that make sure that the Schedules air right. Also a few small bonuses over the course of the year would go a long way for assistant moral just saying

    Pros

    Your experience can be whatever effort you want to put in. You know people & bosses by name, and not from a giant faceless conglomorate overlord. There's a cafeteria, so there's that.

    Cons

    It's very old school, and pay isn't great. It can be hard to challenge the status quo, and changes come very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Reward, challenge, and provide tangible benchmarks and incentives for growth.
