    I have been working at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is great when it comes to benefits, being laid back, and always has something going on.

    Cons

    To be frank, it depends on what department you are hired into and who is your manager/ supervisor. It seems management picks favorites and some of the management team has been known to discriminate against those with medical or mental health conditions. Don't expect large raises or merit increases annually. No matter how long you are in the company it won't cover the cost of inflation from a year to year basis. If your...

    Advice to Management

    To run lean in a department means to be understaffed. Hire and promote managers that can actually manage.

      Very cheap. Does not pay well. Eliminates positions, making others pick up the slack, but the refuses to pay those people for their extra load work.

    • "E.W. Scripps Advancement"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Executive Producer 

        I have been working at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time

        Pros

        The company puts a large investment in growth and allowing for movement to other stations. (This is also a con).

        Cons

        While the company allows for growth and learning, they tend to have a set path for advancement and movement between stations. Being at smaller station, they could limit the highest market you can jump to.
