    Pros

    Great opportunity for someone just off the beach.

    Cons

    Like other family-owned businesses, the family members running the business don't seem to understand that non-family members have different needs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. There are always new people looking for an opportunity. Keep using them until you lose them.

    I have been working at One America News Network full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a chance to meet all the major politicians. We're constantly interview presidential candidates and now nominees.

    Cons

    It's a lot of hard work. We're trying to grow to the size of other companies - but we don't have as many people. That means hard, albeit rewarding, work.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more talk shows that go outside of the two core segments that we already do. I think there are more viewers out there that we can get.

    Pros

    Experience in the broadcast industry, you get to do a lot of things that other companies would give to more experienced people. decent starting pay.

    Cons

    They cap employees at 50,000 no matter how senior their position, or how long they have been at the company. they run through employees like crazy. not many people stay for more than a year or 2

    Advice to Management

    You need to invest in your core people in order to maintain quality and efficiency.

    I have been working at One America News Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I graduated from William & Mary in 2012 and was hired as a Production Assistant. I work long, hard hours, but nothing to compare to the 1920s immigrants who landed in NY, Boston, etc. Unfortunately so many Gen-X workers believe they should begin at the top in work benefits and salary. I have seen that as our company's viewer base has grown, so has our pay and benefits. I believe we've just cleared the launch pad and we WILL be rewarded for our hard work and dedication. Some of the earlier posts are now out of date since we now have Medical, dental, vision and life insurance, Disability insurance and off-duty pay allowance, Employer-funded defined benefit (pension) plan, and a 401(k) with an employer match.

    Cons

    Mr. Herring is constantly on the floor and can be overbearing in his push for excellence, but it's his capitol which is at stake, employees have little to no risk in it's failure. Also, still having long work hours both daily and weekly.

    Advice to Management

    We need more field reporters with improved support to cover the fast paced news in today's world.

    Pros

    Some very nice people in this newsroom.

    Cons

    This is a terrible place to work. To begin with, they will place you on an overnight schedule for months when you get hired, no matter how much experience you have. Their salary is below average for the San Diego news market. They don't offer health insurance for the first couple of months and don't even dream of a 401k program or other benefits. What's worse is, there are no journalistic ethics at this shop. You will pretty much spend 8 hours a day reading stories journalists at reputable news outlets wrote and then write your stories based on that information. In journalism class, we called that plagiarism. On top of everything, the company owner is constantly in the newsroom, breathing down your neck and there are cameras everywhere in the building. It's like the freaking Big Brother house. Stay away from this place!

    Advice to Management

    Honor journalistic ethics and give your employees some benefits for working on a 24-hour schedule, 7 days a week.
