    I have been working at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love how the company remains cutting edge and ahead of the industry in media publication. I appreciate their desire to keep going.

    Cons

    I believe that sometimes it’s easy to feel disconnected with the company at times and sometimes I feel a bit small and insignificant but in many other ways I’m made to feel significant so it balances itself.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to always keep everyone in the loop on the inner workings of everything.
