    Pros

    Great contacts/network of people with amazing experience in the industry
    Travel
    Experience

    Cons

    Very demanding in an inefficient/unnecessary way, definitely need to clean house and get rid those who do really nothing at the top....
    Long hours and expectations to always be available for sales whenever needed
    If you enjoy having your entire day and output dictated to you, then this is for you
    Programs in general aren't doing that well in TV space
    Really lazy upper management who continuously try to make themselves relevant by completely separating themselves from those below them on the day to day
    A lot more would get done if so many people didn't need to be involved in many conflicts
    SOOOO many inefficient meetings
    Sales really doesn't care about you, you have to do whatever they say and when they say it
    Role is just a liaison between all the departments, but they always try to say that it isn't....
    All of your creative ideas are just recycled and you really don't have ownership because of the amount of people that need to weigh in on every proposal
    There is no growth since the older crowd won't leave and this makes a lot of talented, good people quit or leave for competitors or different industries
    Pay is really low and not worth the stress

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, get rid of a lot of those at the top and explore ways to make departments more efficient
    Try to retain younger more talented/relevant employees
    The whole "value experience with the brands under Scripps" is just a way to retain people in the exact same position, for another channel like Travel or HGTV since there is no upward mobility
    The work life balance is also ridiculous. Allowing sales to keep the ASM team SO late into the early morning and then not allow anyone to take actual holiday (everyone works while they are OOO), is insane
    There is a reason why Food and Cooking has such high turnover in ad sales marketing....

    Pros

    Great benefits and culture, activley working to stay on top of the market

    Cons

    Work/life policies are more of a bragging right for the company as their implementation is left up to individual managers and a fair number of employees get left out. Small departments and a younger workforce means career stagnation for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about steps being taken to address cord cutting and provide better career paths
