    I worked at PBS full-time

    Pros

    Casual environment. Decent salary. Great food and parties. Offers work life balance.

    Cons

    You are an at will employee and can be let go at any time. There is a constant turn over in lower level positions. Individuals in upper level positions lack the knowledge for the positions that they hold. They never leave because they are making the higher salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a more diverse staff. There are intelligent people in all races.

    I have been working at PBS part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I like how flexible my schedule is and I really enjoy the people I work with. I also really like the solitude of the job and getting to just do my work. Its really relaxing and as a student its a great opportunity to catch up on class work.

    Cons

    The only downside is that solitude. You have to be really good at keeping yourself entertained, but thats just the nature of the position.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing, I love working with this company and I hope to maybe even work here full time eventually.

    I worked at PBS full-time

    Pros

    Upper management -- smart

    Cons

    High siloes, lack of innovcation and a faux-caring attitude in the digital/marketing department

    Advice to Management

    Although PBS as a whole was a great place to work, I found working with the digital/marketing department to be a toxic, wasteful experience, which colored my time there. My contacts who are currently in that department have said many in that group are looking for jobs to get out, so it sounds like the situation has not changed.
