    Positive experience overall

    Aug 3, 2021 - Anchor%2FReporter in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company is growing and investing in the news division, working at a 24-hour news channel is better than working at an affiliate station, new studios and equipment, the cable company has good benefits (free cable and internet!) and the management seems to care about their employees, Spectrum was very accommodating during the pandemic

    Cons

    Pay isn't amazing, management can be gossipy/play favorites, management from other parts of the country have a huge say in what is done locally and who does it, sometimes the work seems thankless, growing pains are still very apparent after expanding statewide
