Fantastic TV shows, but terrible management
Digital (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 25, 2018
If you're interested in broadcast or digital content, WGBH should be among the most attractive employers in New England, as they produce some of the biggest names in public media: NOVA, Frontline, Masterpiece, and others. Unfortunately while those specific production units are good places to work, the same can't be said of the general management, which is equal parts incompetent and backstabbing. There's a reason the station is still resting on its laurels from 30+ years ago: all of the employees tasked with innovation have fled. Managers regularly play favorites, and the executive team is utterly incapable of leading the station through the coming digital revolution. If you see a job with one of the big national TV shows, go for it, but if it's in radio, local production, digital, fundraising, or other departments, run away fast.

Great place to work but management is poor
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) –  Brighton, MADecember 27, 2017
WGBH was a great place to work overall but the management in my particular department was poor. They played favoritism to low-skilled workers and did not appreciate quality staff.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Poor management and senior level staff
