    Favoritism and ethics are a big problem

    Jan 22, 2020 - Sales in San Antonio, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Many attempts at team building. They try to come across as forward thinking. Sales goals are easily met. The station has a solid reputation with viewers. The sales team receives a lot of leads that make their sales goals easy to meet.

    Cons

    Inappropriate hires. They hire and promote realatives. Not taking advantage of an employee's skill set. Lack of professional development opportunities. Poor quality of internet products and no maintenance once the sale is achieved. Favoritism. Overstaffed in sales and understaffed in news. No accountability for true sales. They rely too much on advertising agencies for new business, very few local commercials are produced for new business. No leadership, no consistency. They lead in the dark and make it up as they go.

    Former Employee, more than 3 years

    Sales Assistant

    Nov 8, 2018 - Sales Associate in Denver, CO
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Company is forward-thinking and wants to remain relevant and take risks.

    Cons

    Many essential employees are very underpaid for the work that they do. Management is very guilty of favoritism, so don’t expect to be promoted or receive added bonuses by proving your worth through your quality of work. HR is a disaster and cannot be trusted to do the right thing (i.e. investigate sexual harassment allegations). Employees are expected to put up and shut up and fully and blindly trust sales leaders.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    TEGNA's focus on purpose, great people and forward thinking approach make them a premiere local content company. They are a large company and value promoting from within so growth is tangible. They invest in the development of their people.

    Cons

    They operate in very lean fashion which results in not always getting what you need to do the job and in some cases reducing the quality and quantity of employee benefits/perks.
