News staff (Former Employee) – East Providence, RI – July 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.
News Producer (Former Employee) – East Providence, RI – June 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.
