    "There are better places"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Line Producer in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Line Producer in New York, NY

    I have been working at MSNBC TV full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love the diversity at this network. Company pays well if you have experience from other places. The location is also great at Rockefeller Center.

    Cons

    Company doesn't train managers well, and doesn't invest in training employees to move up. Very few growth opportunities. The company needs to invest in more staff. Many teams are understaffed and those employees are stressed because of it.

    Cons

    Long hours, may have to find tasks to do on your own.

    Advice to Management

    None. Keep up the great work.

    I have been working at MSNBC TV full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team of young, energetic coworkers who care about news and are passionate about politics.

    Cons

    Uneven experience with management, including numerous shakeups as executives reshuffle positions in a bid to increase ratings and profitability.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to long term needs and set aggressive long term goals for improving numbers, and coordinate more closely with producers and editors who are closer to the action. Too many people playing office politics while their heads are stuck in the clouds.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    You feel like your own person and have free reign to explore other departments as you make friends. Smart people and good pay.

    Cons

    Disorganized sometimes. I think more involvement in personal career goals would be nice.

    Advice to Management

    Look for a good mix of young and old workers. Too many young workers is not always good. Nor vice versa.

    Pros

    great location, liberal commentary, always a lot action going on

    Cons

    terrible management
    does not pay for performance well
    zero feedback
    Do not innovate, inspire, or lead the way for success

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your management teams, just because someone is good at a specific job does not mean they are good at managing people. A manager should have to people skills, the ability to teach others, and lead the way for others.

    Incorporate goals and objectives to departments.

    Pros

    I wanted to work for a great and well respected company and news network. MSNBC seemed to allign with my career goals.

    Cons

    Usual la di da when dealing with artistic direction and the work is very tedious and not a lot of room for growth.But there are hard times.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints really just try and foster a motivational environment where opinions matter instead of having employees deal with tempermental attitudes of superiors.
