    I have been working at MSNBC TV full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for numerous companies and I feel msnbc/NBC has been by far my favorite employer. Gppd pay for.most positions and passionate staff. Managers do care about employees.

    Cons

    Slightly disorganized but we find a way to make it work.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize employees that excel with raises far higher than the average employee.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at MSNBC TV full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    We were really proud of our mission and the work we produced.

    Cons

    MSNBC.com was absorbed into NBCnews.com, and the transition was an absolute mess.

    Pros

    If you are liked, you are booked regularly.

    Cons

    Bookings sometimes feel very tied to who is in power in Congress and the White House. More women booked when HRC was running for president and fewer after. More minorities were booked when President Obama was running and in office; fewer after President Trump was elected.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid stereotyping of talent.
