Sinclair has become a dangerous liability to our civic discourse in the United States, that probably effects their workplace. They have joined up to mainstream formerly-extremist messages, producing sound clips around the nation that terrifyingly feel like 1984 Orwell in bashing the "media" along with trump. This undermine our civic discourse when we can't agree on basic reality, and Sinclair teams up with conservative media peppering the American public with false-equivalences, self-affirming, paranoid, "both sides are bad" uncontextualized propaganda. I'd never work here simply as an informed American.
I dont have anything bad to say about Sinclair...i had nothing but a positive experience working there.

I believe that the management staff has changed a bit and my direct report was a solid guy who has now moved up to the DOS role. However his direct report is one of the old crew. Most if not all of the negative reviews are or were true. It was a crazy place to work.

They can't address it..they will just lie to hide their abuse!..there is no excuse for their actions!!
All the bad reviews are accurate. I wish I would have read them before applying and accepting the job. After working there I would’ve preferred working for a fast food place with my college education than for Sinclair. If you want to work in broadcast go to NBC. Stay away from Sinclair ‘s Management they are the rudest, most condescending, sadists, hypocritical,and ill tempered people you will ever encounter in your life. I was even talked bad about because my religion by my own manager.

The company is run like a tin hat third world dictatorship. All failures that should have been addressed at the corporate level are never completed, and blame is put on the individual stations. Trying to get something fixed is next to impossible. Can you say penny pinching?
They don't address it. They will tell you every station is different. But when horrific management starts at the top in Corp and each manager at every station gets abused and screamed at, it seems to be natural for managers to treat their people at the individual station level exactly the same way. Everyone operates on fear!! Corp instills it, and it trickles down..period!
Each station is individually controlled by a General Manager.
