    Pros

    *In the broadcasting field, there aren't really any pros. It is a constant pay check.

    Cons

    *Company is too far left leaning. For example, distractions, such as diversity meetings, keep employees engaged in nonsensical training, instead of making the company money and growing their skillsets. These create a tribal work culture with employees walking on eggshells. *Health Insurance is awful. HDHCP and you'll be spending your workday counting steps and completing health care journeys on company time to chase employer contributions towards your HSA. *Their mission statement: "Give light and let the people find their way" is about the way the company operates. Managers are given the freedom to take the high pressure and dump those negative emotions all over you because of no accountability.
