    Pros

    It's a friendly, low-stress environment with generous benefits and lots of good places to eat near the studio.

    Many shifts require weekend hours. Upward mobility is limited. Performance review seems to be geared for another industry and can be confusing and unhelpful.

    Pros

    It is a small news station so you can definitely learn a lot. There is a lot of hands-on experience and you are able to try out different jobs to see what you like. For instance, I am a video editor but was able to try out being a photographer, field producer and promotions producer.

    Cons

    From the General Manager down they do not create a positive working environment. No one smiles or says "hello." There is no camaraderie or "team" atmosphere. There is also little to no room for advancement and it is clear that the on-air talent is viewed to be much more important than any of the technical jobs. There is also no accountability. A person that does half the work as me would get the same raise as me. There is also no standard for the quality of work we put on air. You can have blue video and we would air it, and you wouldnt even get in trouble for it!!

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that you create a more open and positive work environment where everyone (men, women, on-air and technical staff) is treated with the same respect. I also think that you should focus on keeping the employees that work exceptionally hard for you.
