    Pros

    Some people will actually care about your development and act as mentors.

    Cons

    No fun perks - for a media company, Univision could do better at letting their employees in on the fun

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more team oriented.

    Pros

    It's a very fast paced environment so if that's what you're looking for you won't be disappointed. If you're in the good graces of upper management you will be taken care of financially.

    Cons

    Since the new former NBC executives came in the workplace has become much more cut-throat and less of a family atmosphere. Long hours are expected and there is little thought to work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you think your employees can't see thru the statement ' There are 6000 employees now and there will be 6000 employees next year', especially when the thought of an IPO is on everyone's lips?
