A place to get started in Broadcast industry...but beware
Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) –  Burbank, CAAugust 4, 2018
If you are interested in getting your feet wet in the broadcast industry this is a good place to start. But don't plan on staying for very long as your knowledge base can only grow so much. Consider it a stop to add on your resume.

-Typical day included the support of Evertz products either remotely, or via onsite customer visits. Some customers are really great, and some are well not so great.

-Everyone is different so I can't speak to what I learned, but make sure you brush up on your Linux

-Management needs to take a management class. Throwing your own employees under the bus, berating and questioning their assessment and experience is not in any way ok. Almost all suggestions to improve conditions are ignored.

-Workplace culture is very toxic. A lot of products and software leave the factory untested or with poor quality control. This often leaves the service team making up excuses for customers and forces them into a very bad position. It also often leads to longer hours and a lot of pressure from customers to complete their job. A lot of the lead Engineer's for their respective department often ignore emails and look down on lower tier employees making things even worse.

-Hardest part of this job is not necessarily the work, but the unnecessary stress and the toxic work culture. It just makes everyone lives harder, and when one link in the chain fails it continues down the line. Everyone has families and lives, and when you work at Evertz they expect you to give up yours. The Sales department notoriously thinks they are above you, and often treat lower
  more... tier departments badly.

-The best part of this job is the crew who works in your department or who is on the same level as you. They are all in the same boat as you and usually makes things easier as you can gripe together, but at some point you will decide its not worth it anymore. There are some really great people at this company who just haven't realized there is more opportunities available.

Replaceable cogs in the machine
Technical Support (Former Employee) –  Burbank, CADecember 11, 2017
Worked as a technical support engineer out of burbank office. Three managers cycled through the office during that time. The facilities for the support team are literally a cube farm in a converted garage now warehouse. Pay is on the low end of the scale. Working late nights and traveling on weekends is expected. Covering your own travel expenses out of your own pocket is expected. Canadian employees get overtime whereas US employees do not. Employee satisfaction is not a priority.
Pros
access to many high profile TV sites
Cons
low pay, long hours, bad travel
