    Pros

    It's a family friendly company with a laid back yet professional work environment. The company also has an enviable reputation in broadcast and cable television.

    Cons

    They don't allow much room for mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train managers and above to develop their employees more. Many people I have talked to feel their supervisors are only concerned with their own jobs/careers and not helping to grow those who work under them to advance.

    I have been working at A&E Networks full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is causal and when business is good you get alot of perks i.e free gifts, paid happy hours, etc. Alot of great people and they promoted from within.

    Cons

    Long hours depending on your department--I'm in ad sales. The pay is a little above the industry standard but still not great for entry level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have some dinosaurs in management that need to be weeded out to improve operations and give some stagnant departments new life

    Pros

    Great people (end-users) to work with

    Cons

    They do not have many things in place, i.e: amount of time emails / voice mails are kept before discarded on the back-end

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you change policy let everyone know so everyone is in sync

    Former Contractor - Designer in New York, NY

    I worked at A&E Networks as a contractor

    Pros

    Good pay, varied projects and reasonable hours. Veteran staff knows what they are doing and the majority are very open to helping guide those new to the company. Most groups are very friendly and there is an air of camaraderie. If you have never worked on a particular type of project before but want the opportunity to take a stab at it, most senior managers will welcome you giving it a try.

    Cons

    Going through a restructuring process that has cut staff and shifted many people around. Many people still don't know what is going to happen to their position and place in the company. IT is very slow and can takes weeks to fix minor problems and need to be hounded to fix big ones. This slows down your workflow to say the least. Freelance is through an outside agency so their are HR concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your internal talent pool more and spend less money and time on outside agencies. IT needs to be more on top of problems and creating real solutions. IT was very frustrating.

    I have been working at A&E Networks as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The internship program is awesome in a way that you get to interact with all departments in the office because of the various weekly department lunches. Also, they value the interns input, perspective, and opinion a lot and encourage a lot of discussion with the interns to impact their business.

    The company culture is also great - all departments are very welcoming and you can see the employees are generally happy.

    Cons

    There seems to be sometimes a misconnection with the headquarters in NY in terms of decision making and everyday responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate both the LA and NY office in a more cohesive management.

    Pros

    Benefits package, paycheck, free coffee and hot chocolate

    Cons

    If you like liars, sexual harassment, homophobia, backstabbing slime balls then this is the place you want to be. A+E is a cesspool of toxic people and losers. Anyone with a soul would not stay here. Words of advice. If you need to go to HR don't waste your time. Go to a job interview for another company instead. Should you decide to stay and want to climb the corporate ladder don't do any work and they will promote you to Director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try praying.

    I worked at A&E Networks as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a great, fun culture overall and within most departments. The female senior leadership provides balance. The internship program has a lot of benefits. You have the opportunity to learn about all of the departments and interact with senior management from those departments. Given all of the benefits of the internship program, the compensation is good.

    Cons

    There weren't many cons.

    Pros

    Culture, Work life balance, open door policies with management. Very creative company that is growing and makes employees feel like they are part of the growth.

    Cons

    just like any big company there are always pros and cons. Its hard to make everyone happy. More inclusive things for the company as a whole so everyone feels included in the excitement
