    I have been working at Scripps Networks Interactive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and laid back. The hours and work load are reasonable.

    Cons

    Very bizarre upper management on my team. Click-ish, and managers are defensive ego maniacs with very poor communication skills. They say one thing and do another. There is no pathway to expand your responsibilities or grow in terms of position or salary no matter how well you are performing. Upper management likes who they like and thats it. Double standards all over the place.

    Pros

    Great benefits; wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    There should be a better path for growth within the company. Too many managers have been promoted that are unqualified.

    I have been working at Scripps Networks Interactive full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work in small but dynamic team of knowledgeable staff. Emphasis is on completing team tasks without drama. Company benefits are great including medical, 401 K, etc. Have routine and direct access to Senior Vice President (division head) and other upper managers. Despite this being a non-management position, entrusted to be primary liaison with major company vendors as well as emphasizing cost control.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are very limited for employees like myself who work in backbone/support operations. Although I received merit pay increases each year, I have not been promoted despite receiving additional tasks over the course of my employment. Bottomline is that the further you are away from program development, research, etc, the less your advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Be advised that we recently received notice from CEO that Scripps was acquired by Discovery Communications. As such, I anticipate there being buyouts, layoffs, etc. Keep this in mind as you search for employment. Also, ask yourself if it is likely the position you are seeking is present within both Scripps and Discovery. If yes, then it is possible that the Scripps position will be eliminated.
