  1. "Great place to intern, but only if you can afford it"

    Pros

    - Plenty of hands-on assignments (no worries about coffee-fetching, though you probably will have to get water for the interview guests)
    - Being able to go out and film with reporters
    - The people you intern under will make sure you're really learning from this internship

    Cons

    - Doesn't pay
    - Might be slow days
    - No guarantee that you'll land a job after

    Advice to Management

    Please start paying your interns. I understand that budgeting makes it difficult, but the interns work really hard and contribute quite a bit to the newsroom. They deserve to be compensated for that.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at NY1 News full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paycheck and insurance. Easy, no brainer job

    Cons

    Pay is horrible. $15. Entry level job. Work with people fresh out of college with no other experience. They will consider you a threat. Didn't even know how to white balance a camera. If you have years of experience, manager will consider you a threat. After probation period decided you are not a fit.

    Advice to Management

    Get people with experience. Fire people who sleep at Master Control and Audio. Not the ones who are alert and eager. Get rid of medocrity and laziness. Pay more money.

    Pros

    Great People
    Great place to get experience
    You get to wear many hats and learn every aspect behind the scenes

    Cons

    The money is VASTLY underpaid for being in the number 1 market in television, which makes it a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Offer competitive pay

    I have been working at NY1 News full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co worker are great. Good company to begin career.

    Cons

    Low pay under industry standard. Short staffed. Little room for advancement.

    I have been working at NY1 News full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a great place to work and learn about the TV field. Allows you to grow into different positions which is very hard in other news organizations because of the unions. Also great bosses and work environment

    Cons

    Very entry level positions do not pay very well but gives you great experience to go and find work on major networks making really good money.

    I worked at NY1 News full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A young journalist can get LOTS of hands on experience in the #1 news market in the country. You cover stories some people wait entire careers to experience. Work environment is extremely friendly. Many in the newsroom are real friends outside of work. The newsroom doesn't have the cutthroat feel of the network affiliates in the city. Healthcare coverage for staffers is very, very good and affordable.

    Cons

    Pay is abysmal, unsustainable for a single adult trying to make a comfortable life for themselves in New York City.

    Advice to Management

    Improve pay, many people want to make careers with this organization but are unable to because of economics.

    Pros

    Great people and great benefits if you are full-time. Many people stay for many years

    Cons

    Pros

    NY1 is a real newsroom, and there are a ton of smart, talented people along for the ride. They're very on the beat of New York City news, and if you can pull people aside, there's a lot to be learned.

    Cons

    NY1 is part of a big corporation (TWC) and sometimes moves at big corporation speeds. There is also so much going on ... and so many people at the office ... that it feels oddly anonymous at times.

    Bonus & Appraisal System needs to be better.

    I worked at NY1 News full-time

    Pros

    Great experience if you are just graduating school.

    Cons

    You cannot survive on the salary in NYC. Especially since they make you work at least 4 days a week so you can't get a second job. But the health benefits are almost worth it. Best insurance Ill ever have
