The people are really good people. I enjoyed working with my fellow colleagues! It's very neat to work at a TV station and see how the magic happens. Also, it's a well known TV station and is good for the ego!
Too many management meeting that left managers unavailable to staff that needed assistance or approval on things. Ad rates vary so much and it can be difficult to justify to customers(part of the business in general, but still difficult). At the time, there was a shift in many upper management positions, which made this position seem shaky and employees felt uncertain about their futures.

The pros were you got a paycheck and had a lot of downtime to do basically whatever; watch TV, read.... Actual work time probably boiled down to 2 hours in an 8-hour shift; more if you worked the morning shift.
No accountability for producers if they were friends of the News Director. Constant mistakes were never corrected. Management is more concerned with style over substance. It really doesn't matter how well you do your job, it's what job you do that determines whether you'll keep your job. Every current employee I talk to now talks about how horrible it is to work there now.

The work environment can be fun. It's LIVE television.
Consumers are moving away from the TV medium. Making it less effective for advertisers.

None at all I can speak of
Pit of snakes, unorganized, constant infighting and blaming people for managers mistakes

There are none, aside from getting a paycheck every two weeks
By far the most incompetent management team I've ever come across in all my time in TV news
