News staff (Former Employee) –  East Providence, RIJuly 20, 2016
Staff is a mixture of young people and old-timers. Old-timers are there for life and most of them bring a lousy attitude, which brings down morale. Management is so-so. They tend to rely on consultants. It seemed like the consultants ran the show. Managers are pretty good doers - just not really great thinkers. Came across one manager who was a total bully - everyone hated him. Lots of right-wingers, too. Lol. Younger staff was hard working, good group of people, dedicated to journalism. Stepping stone type of station.
Pros
Fun working in news/tv
Cons
Management.

Don't stay more than a year.
News Producer (Former Employee) –  East Providence, RIJune 22, 2016
Good place to learn about tv news, but mediocre management makes things difficult. Very corporate directed. Learn what you can in a year and get out fast. Pay stinks, and doesn't match the cost of living in Providence. News Director micro manages everyone / everything. Cold personality makes her difficult to approach. Head of Engineering is an angry bully and berates people often. Not nice.
Pros
Decent equipment, young energetic employees
Cons
Management, direction, pay

They have no ethics or respect for the public.
Full-time engineer responsible for MCR/VTR/Audio (Former Employee) –  Providence, RIFebruary 20, 2015
You can't have any opinion or respect for yourself to maintain a position with this company. What more can I say about the dark evil force that plagues mankind that is television.
