I really had fun working they. I worked for the legal department and it consisted of typing letters, filing, picking up their mail, and shipping packages. They were very easy to talk to. Very diverse work culture.

Scripps is an excellent company with top of the line products in the industry. Scripps was just acquired by Discovery Communications and the merger is estimated to be complete by mid March. I enjoy selling the products but I believe that the competitive atmosphere between departments can (at times) be counterproductive to the sales process. I think that the upper management is excellent at Scripps and the people running the company are very smart.
The board allowed political "leadership" or better said, "political people to hold LEADERSHIP positions" that had far more concern for themselves than the company. My experience was disappointing...
Life is to short to be in a cya environment that is more about the survival of the political fittest than it is about moving the business forward.
The lack of leadership, combined with the lack of strategy, ultimately took down the business that was previously privately held and doing FINE....until Scripps came in. They brought in outsiders who didn't know the business nor take the time to understand it.
Excellent overall experience. Executive leadership is top notch. Great benefits. Proud to work at Scripps and help exceed goals. There is an on site café which is very handy. On site game room to unwind. Would be beneficial to have on site childcare available.
Training Manager (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – December 14, 2017
A great place to work with talented people. My job consisted of maintaining equipment VTR's, Monitors and support equipment. After my promotion to training manager, I trained operators on new equipment and scheduled off-site training. The work environment presented challenges with the changes in technology and content this could be challenging and enjoyable depending on the circumstances. Overall I enjoyed my experience and learned a great deal from co-workers during my time at Scripps.
Fast paced, results driven, core values focused and compassionate
Senior Vice President (Current Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 26, 2017
Scripps has provided a terrific opportunity to grow my experience, skills and ultimately my career. It is an honor to have participated in the creation of a what has become a collection of very powerful cable programming brands. The same can be said for many other employees. The reasons so many people love working here is the leadership and culture. From our somewhat humble beginnings in 1994 to what is now our global household brands, Scripps success has been very hard fought over many years. While there has been a strict focus on results, the same can be said about the employees well being, a balanced life and our core values.
Core values including Integrity, diversity, shared responsibility among others.
people like it here and are productive which reduces turn over and thereby, at times, dampen advancement
Assistant Camera (Former Employee) – Denver – September 24, 2017
Learned a lot and was given a good gateway to TV production industry. Workplace culture was nice and cooperative. Hardest part of job was picking up new skills. Most enjoyable part of job was the people.
