    Pros

    Great coworkers. No micromanagement. Great benefits. One of the first hub facilities in the country. Company Kitchen break room with free coffee and hot chocolate.

    Cons

    No chance of advancement. Like most master control positions the only thing to hope for might be an occasional supervisor opening with time. That comes with it on set of problems. Not for everyone.

    Buy Meredith. Stay away from Nexstar.

    Pros

    Independent to work on your own and your ideas are heard. Less meetings so more time to work on your projects. Great location, can walk downtown for lunch. Company trying to bring comrade together by creating monthly fun events for us all.

    Shortage on garage parking access. Some park around homeless shelter can be a bit discouraging. Pay could be better

    To actually use and implement the ideas created from their employees.
