Suggestions for improvement

  • More opportunities to have real holidays where we can turn off our company emails.

What I like about the company

A fun diverse group of colleagues that have become family over the years.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of a work-life balance. Many of us in the international news department work 80+ hours per week, where we are required to be on-call 24/7. We are required to work during vacation, weekends, and holidays. While it is an exciting atmosphere, we sometimes teeter on burnout. Better management of time and resources would be enormously helpful. Not all of us are spring chickens anymore.

Job Security

No. Disney ABC is agressively union busting and using non-union workers to replace union workers.

Inclusive / Diverse

No. Management constantly demeanors union employees

Suggestions for improvement

  • replace top tier managers with those who are more concerned with the wealfare of the workforce and not thier bonus.

What I like about the company

Nothing. Biggest mistake I made was falling for pitch given by the management when interviewing.

What I dislike about the company

Management degrades NABET union personnel and shows favoritism in assigning work, training and overtime. Actively trying to destroy the union by giving perks and setting the work force against each other.
