News Reporter (Former Employee) –  Cairns20 September 2018
A typical day in the newsroom entails sourcing, researching and writing stories for radio, television and online publication. Every day is different and can have you filming and scripting all day, or interviewing and filing for radio.

Always a fun place to work
Field and Post Production Engineer (Former Employee) –  Adelaide SA24 July 2017
A typical day at work was always a surprise because I had to expect to not have expectations.
The workplace culture was great as we were metaphorically just one big family, and we all mucked in to make the wheels turn without exception.
Pros
Meeting and working with untold numbers of people from all aspects of life.
Cons
Sometimes extremely long hours, but a challenge nonetheless.

Australia's puplic broadcaster
TV News Story Producer, Radio News Producer (Current Employee) –  Sydney NSW17 September 2016
A professional atmosphere, friendly co-workers. The ABC continues to achieve excellence in jourtnalism, despite murderous government cuts in recent years. All departments are feeling the strain, but continue to do more with less.

TV/Radio News Cataloguer/Researcher (Current Employee) –  Sydney, Australia26 December 2015
On a daily basis I either catalogue the news from the previous day across several ABC programs. Apart from the actual cataloguing details which need to be checked are metadata linking records to the their related vision, assuring standard vocabulary and metadata is correct and any foreign agency vision is noted as restricted as well as selecting ABC vision for archive which may not have been broadcast but is valuable for reuse.

I also provide research for journalists, e.g locating archival footage and ingesting the material either from tape or from digital archives. This role also includes selecting raw material for archive, quality check of both metadata and file names according to organisation wide standards, searching schedules for programs and their related metadata.

I used various databases to both catalogue and research including media asset management systems, ingesting vision from tape into digital format, archiving and restoring vision in our databases.
Pros
Good team work, life/work balance.
Cons
Old software systems makes for some frustration in storage space and workflows.

Interesting, great people but uneven and facing huge challenges
Change / Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Ultimo6 February 2015
The ABC isn't really one organisation but a confederation of departments and units which have vastly different styles and cultures. Some areas are fast moving and as advanced as anywhere I've worked. In others you could be in the backwaters of the public service. Having said that if you're flexible, interested in media and up for a challenge it's a great place to work.
Pros
People, diversity, work life balance
Cons
Can be bureaucratic, some management not up to standard, faces big external issues
