    I worked at Scripps part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing Co-Workers. Opportunities for expanding creative freedom and networking. Good stepping stone to learn the basics for where you really want to go with your career.

    Cons

    Poor poor poor management; love to pick and choose. They do not care about most of their employees. High turnover rate within the whole station. Constant belittling and discrimination. Promises are made and almost immediately switched. Overworked & underpaid. Very low pay - even if you move up to a full time position, the pay raise is very little. Mistakes during shows are mostly laughed off and put aside like nothing happened.

    Advice to Management

    Bring people in who either know what they're doing or who has a quick and strong desire to learn. Too many mistakes that are made are mostly laughed off and/or the blame gets put on the wrong people. Stop belittling and threatening employees. Help them, don't put them down.

    Pros

    Employees are nice. Good benefits. Lots of room to do your own thing. Products are decent to sell. Great team.

    Cons

    Constantly playing catch up to hit budget. It's the only thing that matters. Doesn't matter if you build relationships with clients they just need to spend.

    Advice to Management

    Don't set the budget so high.
