    I worked at Pro.TV (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary, modern workspace, well-equipped technologically.

    Cons

    Nepotism rules this company. You don't think, they tell you what to do, no questions asked or you're in trouble. The quality of employees is very low, most come from lower classes with poor education, lack of empathy and low social skills. Silly job promotions (from car driver to camera operator or from technician to broadcast director). They call themselves a big family and it's literally that: everyone who gets a job here, hires all their relatives. There are entire families working in this company (Father, Mother, Daughter, Boyfriend, Aunt, etc). There is no career opportunity for those who are not friends with someone in charge. Boot-licking is the internal currency of this company. Personality and backbone is hated, people are brainwashed and spoon fed what they need to know and think, it's like a zombie factory. After 3 months of working here, everyone has the same opinion and if you dare contradict it, you will be marginalised and even ostracised.

    And the irony of it all is that Pro Tv's slogan is "Think free!". Which is exactly what you are not allowed to do, someone else is doing the thinking, you only have to execute their orders.

    Advice to Management

    Hire young people who are smarter than you are, people who have integrity and a mind of their own. And let them express their views and creativity freely, don't lock their mind in a cage behind a good salary. Promote art, culture and decent social values, don't turn in Fox News or The Sun. Go back to the roots, review your original ethos and push it even forward. Just because gypsies, violence, poverty and suffering sells, that doesn't mean you have to sell it in all your programmes. Educate your viewers, don't keep them uneducated so that you can easily keep them glued to the screen. You can do it just as easily with high quality content. For every Kardashian in the world, there is an Elon Musk. And I don't see Kim's naked selfies changing the world anytime soon...

    I worked at Pro.TV (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only big pro is that it looks nice to have such a strong company o your resume. Other than that keep away from Protv for the sake of your your mental health

    Cons

    Nepotism everywhere, virtually no perspectives for promotions and the salaries are below average. Management is incompetent in all aspects, deadlines are usually "yesterday or the day before yesterday". You will lose your mind afer 1 year with protv. Also if they propose freelance projects (a strategy used to have you working on weekends) you will most likely make more money selling stolen roses at Belu cemetery than workibg for them. In a nutshell: rude chaotic company where you are seen as a row in an excell file rather than a human being.stay away!!!

    Advice to Management

    Disable the butt kissing strategy immediately.
    Hire a young team that will take the company out of 2007 back into 2016.
    Stop fearing the Czech leaders. They are ruining your company

    Pros

    Very good environment, balance between life / work is ok, flexible program, understanding management, smart people, good professionals

    Not so good salaries for the people that are not in the top management.

    Be smart and remember that the people (at least the one that are still there) are the most important asset that PRO TV has.

    I have been working at Pro.TV full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a good work life balance and reasonable terms and conditions. It was quite an opportunity being part of the team. Everything was professional and the quality of the results was obvious.

    Cons

    Since the management and the firm targets are changed, it became a chaos. Low pay, frequent transitions.

    Pros

    You learn (if you pay attention) how the television works, what will get you a good rating

    Cons

    Crazy hours, one or two free weekends a month, no prospects for a raise, the HR doesn't care about what you have to say, no training opportunities (if you want to learn new stuff that will make you better at your job, you have to pay for yourself)

    Advice to Management

    To the new management being clueless, I'll have to say that you're understaffed and you've just demoralized the entire company
