I believe that the management staff has changed a bit and my direct report was a solid guy who has now moved up to the DOS role. However his direct report is one of the old crew. Most if not all of the negative reviews are or were true. It was a crazy place to work.

All the bad reviews are accurate. I wish I would have read them before applying and accepting the job. After working there I would’ve preferred working for a fast food place with my college education than for Sinclair. If you want to work in broadcast go to NBC. Stay away from Sinclair ‘s Management they are the rudest, most condescending, sadists, hypocritical,and ill tempered people you will ever encounter in your life. I was even talked bad about because my religion by my own manager.

The company is run like a tin hat third world dictatorship. All failures that should have been addressed at the corporate level are never completed, and blame is put on the individual stations. Trying to get something fixed is next to impossible. Can you say penny pinching?

They don't address it. They will tell you every station is different. But when horrific management starts at the top in Corp and each manager at every station gets abused and screamed at, it seems to be natural for managers to treat their people at the individual station level exactly the same way. Everyone operates on fear!! Corp instills it, and it trickles down..period!

Each station is individually controlled by a General Manager.
