    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.

    Pros

    You work for cool brands.

    Cons

    No training, not the nicest team for someone learning.

    Advice to Management

    invest in a training program. Shadowing doesn't always work, especially if the one your shadowing is not getting paid to train you, you might get someone who isn't willing to help or teach you.

    I worked at Scripps Networks Interactive full-time

    Pros

    Great brands that made it easy to work for. Nice perks for employees (especially in Knoxville office).

    Cons

    Lots of red tape that's found in other organizations . Work life balance isn't great. Training for Managers and cross-functional training specifically is nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees better tools to manage their employees. Teach them how to be managers, how to interview properly to fill vacant positions in their department, how to set tangible goals to help retain talent and listen to what folks have to say (not just their manager's opinion on how things are within the department).
