Master Control Operator in Indianapolis, IN
on May 27, 2021
While the local managers did what they could to help, corporate cares about nothing except growth which seems to be more driven by people leaving and rehiring at lower pay or not filling at all. Reason for people leaving is because pay is extremely low (not uncommon to have seen McDonald’s hiring for same hourly rate), let alone if you have a degree or experience in the industry. Corporate simply sticks fingers in their ears and puts blinders and ignores local stations requests for more resources and instead focuses on their pet projects that’ll never break even, let alone a profit. This company is headed for a disaster soon, and they’re lucky to have survived long enough to become as established as they are.

The best part of the job were my coworkers. The station was understaffed, we did not have enough equipment, or working equipment for that matter. Some coworkers were helpful, but the company did not invest in their employees growth. I left after my first year and had to pay $2,000 to buy out my contract, which was more than I made each month.

I really loved this job when I started. Then Nexstar came and bought us out, and our workload has more than doubled without any added compensation. There's no effective training protocol with the new system and communication is horrible

I’ve seen worse. I’ve certainly seen better but I’ve seen worse.Based upon reviews of some of the other Nexstar stations around the country I wasn’t surprised at the degree of inefficiency and erratic behavior in this newsroom.Leadership was always lacking but there were some excellent human beings there.It’s TV News, what should we expect?

It would be a nice place to work if it weren’t for the “me,me,me’ personalities. The long time employees run the place and will stab you in the back to keep doing so.
