Digital (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 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.
