Great culture and amazing company!
Human Resources Business Partner (Current Employee) –  Knoxville, TNMarch 18, 2016
The employees and management at SNI make this such a great place to work! The work-life balance and flexibility allow family to be a priority, while remaining engaged in the business. Co-worker relationships and company culture add value to the day-to-day routines. Every day, I feel proud and honored to work for this company.

Great company that is going through growing pains
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNMay 13, 2015
When I started working at Scripps, it was a medium sized company (less than 1000 employees) and had built a very nice culture that included a great work/life balance. As the company grew, it started to experience issues that are not uncommon with small companies that are trying to become larger and compete with their larger competitors. Some levels of management that were promoted from within did not, and in my opinion still do not, have the basic management skills needed for the positions that they are in. The company is also split in multiple sectors that do not appear to work well together. There is also the appearance of both a 'good ole boy' and a 'good ole girl' network within some of the sectors. This is not good for the overall success of the company.

There are a lot of really good, hard working individuals at the company. Unfortunately, there are also some individuals that believe the only way to succeed in their career is to step on, and belittle their co-workers. This leads to a lot of mistrust among the individuals and makes for environment that is less productive than it could be.
Pros
Great salary and benefits package, got to work on some very creative projects.
Cons
Lack of promotion opportunities in the department that I worked in, Promotions were based on favoritism rather than work credentials.

Advancement is difficult

Great Place to work if you qualify
Network Operations Technician (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNFebruary 5, 2015
Scripps Networks is a nationally recognized company that is heavily invested in lifestyle and culture. They are a top notch company that requires top notch employees.

The culture at Scripps is second to none. They offer wonderful benefits and top notch pay rates. Many who work there have been there for years and love it.

Like all large corporate cultures, the management demands excellence. Most are reasonable and willing to work with you. Some however are hard-nosed and demanding, never seems to be satisfied.

So if you qualify and can get in the door, expect to stay there for the long haul. Just be wary of the more demanding management members.
Pros
great culture, environment and benefits
Cons
some demanding management.

Flexible Workplace with Excellent Benefits
Freelance Web Designer (Current Employee) –  Knoxville, TNFebruary 3, 2015
Since I'm a freelancer, the work can sometimes be sporadic, but the pay was always excellent and the deadlines were reasonable. Maybe the most difficulty was with last minute changes, otherwise very enjoyable.

Fun place to work, but no one leaves
Ad Sales Planner, HGTV/DIY (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 3, 2014
The culture is great, but people love working here so much that there is no room for growth. A typical day is responding to emails for client needs. I have learned how to put together a media plan to satisfy our clients. The hardest part of the job is knowing that it's a support role. The part I enjoy is the content.

Fun Yet Productive Work Atmosphere
Intern, Human Resources International (Former Employee) –  Chevy Chase, MDMay 12, 2014
The Travel Channel (at Scripps Networks Interactive) proved to have a great work culture and worklife culture. Office is fun yet is very productive. Time management is necessary, as there is no hand holding and work must be completed in a timely manner.
