    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at WITF full-time

    Pros

    The people are wonderful. Everyone is very dedicated to the mission and wants central Pennsylvanians to have the best news, information and entertainment possible. It is a very work-life balanced culture and management is flexible.

    Cons

    The departments are very separate, and there is a new initiative to integrate all of the departments which will hopefully bring a higher level of inter-communication to WITF.

    Advice to Management

    Meetings should be interactive rather than reporting!

    Awesome company to work for with fantastic employees! The internship was exciting and full of new things to learn!

    I worked at WITF

    Pros

    Beautiful interior. Nice equipment. Clean. Large. Modern.

    Cons

    Biased. Little communication. Not enough full time positions. Unprofessional actions. Attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Please use a third-party company such as Aerotek to hire candidates because several professionals believe your hiring techniques are not based off of finding the most qualified candidates.
