      Pros

      People genuinely care about the well being of each other.

      Cons

      There are often people that are down and sometimes the things the say are taken as truth.

      Pros

      The building has good air-con and some of my colleagues are nice people. Sometimes we get snacks.

      Cons

      Working with a former Navy Seal who is filling in for several hosts while they are on vacation. He thinks he’s famous because he once met Donald Trump and is very rude and dismissive to anyone he considers beneath him. He is also the dumbest person I’ve ever met and his political views are insane - even worse off camera if that is even possible. Before I started working at Newsmax several people warned me not to because it was “the bottom of the barrel” and it was toxic to have on my resumé so I wouldn’t be able get a job anywhere else. That is probably true. Everyone who works there is trying to leave and is applying for other jobs. I wish I could get a job at Fox News instead, but I can’t since Newsmax is regarded as a joke within the media and my experience counts foe nothing. Frustrating!!!

      Pros

      None, if you work there, you'll lose all your professionalism if you had some to start with.

      Cons

      Bad co-workers, filled with venom, no communication skills, lying in front of you and twisting news in front of the camera.

      Pros

      The Pros is you learn what bad tv is. You won’t feel out of place because everyone is just finding out what to do

      Cons

      Your co workers are fake. If you are black you better be republican and not voice any opinion. They will fire you so fast for no reason at all. Nobody in the building knows what the CEO wants to do. Everything is a guess. Super bias conservative station in NYC (makes no sense).
