Toxic culture seeps its way from the top down into the newsroom. The station is run by a person with zero news experience, who would often order writers and producers in the newsroom to generate stories based off of conspiracy theories he'd read, or cut stories from the newscast, based on his political leanings.The owner runs the company in such a way, that everyone becomes paranoid. Because of this, in part, managers often create this toxic, clicky work atmosphere; their number one goal is to please the owner. They won't stand up for employees or journalistic principals. The place is almost completely devoid of integrity, and became a completely soul-sucking place at which to work.The best way to exist there is to fly as far under the radar as possible, and try to focus your efforts to non-political stories, which won't be caustically interfered with by management or, worse, the owner, and then get out when you have enough experience to do so.Honestly, I'd advise just getting a different job, and avoiding this place like the plague.
While working here, I’ve noticed terrible Journalistic standards and absolutely no integrity for journalism. Everything that is being reported has not been fact checked nor authenticated. Basically anything being reported on OANN can be discredited and disregarded. I urge anyone who is interested in journalism and news to run anywhere else for work.
Lies, harassment, toxic work environment, racism, sexism, misogyny, lack of accountability, constant gaslighting, dead end job
One America harbors a hostile and bully work environment. The writers were overworked and verbally abused by producers and the higher ups are ignorant of complaints by subordinates. Pay was considerably low considering the cost of living in San Diego.

Its a place for news reporters to get stuff done and grow with the progression of news. Everyone that works there is a joy to work with. I've learned a lot form those around me and have strengthen my skills.
opportunity to travel
short breaks stressful
OAN often touts how unbiased and impartial it is when trying to sell itself as a true news network on the rise, but spending even just 10 minutes watching a mid-day broadcast and you'll realize just how much the owner appreciates President Trump.
Experience in TV news
Overnight hours, overbearing boss
This was the worst job I've ever had and probably will ever have. All employees operate in fear. CEO and management use fear and threats in order to force writers to create the stories they want to see. CEO and other upper management have no journalism experience. This leads to a total lack of journalistic ethics in the company. Essentially, they tell the writers what stories to cover and which to ignore. Writers are chastised for expressing independent thoughts or trying to bring unique perspectives to their work that aren't aligned with right-wing ideologies. For these reasons, it's an understatement to say this company has a revolving door. They hire fresh out of college students who lack experience because students are so desperate for a job upon graduation. It's a shame that this company is often a young person's first job experience in the journalism world.
You can advance quickly because people are constantly quitting
Perfect stepping-stone for young adults straight out of college. The CEO rules by fear and has questionable journalism ethics. The pay is minimum. However, there are a lot of opportunities within the company to try different jobs in Broadcast Journalism.
Young fresh environment, opportunity to learn

check how long they actually retain the people they hire! There is a REASON they fire or lose their employees. I think in a years time it was like 30 people who had left their position at the network. Be ready for low pay and complete unfairness be ready for the children games.
i didnt work for free
the pay was the lowest in the industry
Let me start off by saying they do pay their employees competitively. However they also give their employees the short end of the straw. They're not very flexible when it comes to school schedules. As a national news network, they do impose their own opinion on politics despite their claims to be fair and balanced. If you have seniority, they will not give you priority as what happened to me. For my department, it was demanding since my department was extremely understaffed.
Competitive Pay, Good Benefits
Inflexible schedule, Demanding Environment
Typical day at work was very simplistic and routine for writers, editors, directors, producers, and other. The job itself doesn't provide much learning if you're someone who already worked in the industry before but it was valuable learning experience for those who recently graduated college and never worked in the news industry before. Management was absolutely horrible. Top Management (CEOs, Owners, etc.) constantly micromanaged things and were not familiar with journalistic ethics or principles so frequently asked for things either unethical or unreasonable for actual journalist to do to fit the narrative that they wanted to spread. Lower management (Department Supervisors, etc) constantly clashed and never agreed on how things should be done, always passing blame onto others. The combination of those two things led to the company having an extremely high turnover rate with plenty of disgruntled employees.
