    Former Employee - Editor in New York, NY
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Salaries are competitve to good, when you're hired full-time; company too often hires freelancers on a day-rate to save money. There is a certain prestige still associated with the network, but more to outsiders than those within the buildings.

    Cons

    capricious management, little options for growth. In recent years, the company has lost sight of its news focus and, in panic, rushed to make seriously damaging decisions in its newsrooms. I dream of the days when there was mutual respect between management and staff. It is virtually impossible to find now. Employees are terminated without cause, on a whim, without notice, making the level of anxiety and paranoia very high. The atmosphere is tense and often confrontational.

    Advice to Management

    Respect employees, value their contributions, realize that long term employees have much to offer the company
