    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people working for Scripps. Good local people with good intentions. Scripps has a good reputation.

    Cons

    Bad top-down leadership. They are old school, overly corporate, and getting worse. The main corporation (in Ohio) were very micro-managing. Everyday decisions must go all the way up the chain to corporate. Managers at the local levels are not trusted to do their jobs. Much time is wasted waiting for decisions on even small projects or events. The biggest issue I had was a lot of wasted time. We would sit in meetings for hours on end, discussing vague concepts, accomplishing nothing, and getting behind on real work. The company is also becoming very PC, with the CEO sometimes sending out eye-opening (finger-pointing) messages about societal/racial issues, apparently believing his employees are not as virtuous as he is in those regards.

    They have decent benefits,but it can be stressful as any other news job. Your manager can make or break you in terms of whether you excel or remain stuck.

    I have been working at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The premiums are decent. They pay for short term disability. You can qualify for $125 per quarter to be added to your.

    Cons

    HSAs- are horrible!! The deductibles are extremely high especially for a family. It all looks good at the beginning. Over 2k out of pocket before deductibles kick in. Keep in mind you are paying the full price of the invoice after the “insurance adjustments”. 13 hundred is what you are given on your HSA card towards your 4k deductible. There are several services or visits that don’t even go towards your deductible. You can put more towards that amount, if you can afford it! Pet insurance/discounts are available in 3 places in my area.
