    I worked at Univision part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You learn a lot about production and get to work with nice and knowledgeable people.

    Cons

    You're horribly underpaid
    Some of your superiors are unprofessional and lose their tempers at a moment's notice
    Your health and well being is second to the production
    Moving in to a full time position is next to impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take advantage of your employees. Many of them are immigrants who are exploited because they are just grateful to be working.

    I have been working at Univision full-time

    Pros

    Generous salaries. Some smart people.

    Cons

    Awful management - young, egotistical, disrespectful, cutthroat. Corporate politics - be careful what you say and to who. Constant change - structure is always changing, so it's impossible to know exactly know what your role is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider employee satisfaction. Assistants should not act as HR fill ins.

    Pros

    Great "worker bees". Collaborative environement, depending on division...Great to better learn understand the Hispanic culture.

    Cons

    Management is generally dishonest. Words and actions dont match. They promise you a salary, then divide it up into base and potential. I do not know anyone who made their "salary". Constantly creating new measurement criteria, which causes less salespeople to make their pay, which is 100% commisssion. They will hire lot of people as they never have to pay them. Also in bad weather, if you do not make it into the office - they will take your vacation days for each day missed. Also discrimination is rampant and practiced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are not interested in what I thought then and less likely now...I repeat be careful.

    I worked at Univision full-time

    Pros

    There are no Pros that I can think of here. Maybe the building is cool. You get an office instead of a cubicle. I guess that is a plus in itself. The location is very nice. I think everything outside of the company is cool.

    Cons

    Everything. HR is awful. This company is so bad. They treat their employees like cattle. They micromanage the sh*t out of you. Management is painful, condescending, patronizing, and disgusting. I would not wish this company on my worst enemy.

    I worked at Univision full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Pay
    Good Location
    Growing Demographic
    Many resources made available

    Cons

    Was told that I had 2 weeks vacation. Shortly after starting was told that 1 of those weeks I had to use during Xmas week. They only give you 1 week per year. Worked there for a very short time but got the game on this place very quickly. Lots of bitterness and everyone is fearful for next round of layoffs. No team work. Was lucky my last job took me back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront with future employees. Follow the rules that you expect employees to. Human Resource won't close early on Good Friday but head of HR gets to leave early?

    Pros

    If you are one of the founders you will be there forever even when you do a mediocre job.

    Cons

    Horrible Managment who doesn't care about people. They don't promote growth of their employees only to be machines that do the same thing over and over. Not much of a social atmosphere. Practical slavery of Techs and Crews + they don't pay that much. Attitude of Giants but the actual results on screen are mediocre at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the people first.

    I have been working at Univision full-time

    Pros

    Good people work at the company. Great Hispanic growth - company serves the population well.

    Cons

    No real leadership or support from management at all levels - just reporting and finger pointing and fear. Employees are "let go" regularly - it seems like every month and once in a while there are large layoffs. Employees are never told it's happening or if it's over. Consequently, everyone is always worried about losing their job and feel demoralized and de-motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make an effort to treat employees with respect. Try to build trust and make employees feel confident - not frightened. If there is a layoff, explain it and let people know when it's over and what the direction is for the future.

    Pros

    The people here are very friendly. Hispanics are a fast growing segment who are underserved. Clearly opportunity exists. And the company is in a good position to capitalize.

    Cons

    Too many middle men. Management that piles on an absurd workload without clear prioritization, while at the same time cutting resources from areas that are working. People are scared because keeping one's job no longer seems to be based on performance. Also there is no upward mobility for current employees as an endless number of vp's and directors are cycled in and out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to cut people, do it in a much more effective manner. Clearly some people even whole departments only remain here because of favoritism.
