    I have been working at Univision as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    There was a good work environment and nice coworkers who offered to help whenever needed.

    Cons

    The office was sort of dead and from a creative stand point, very corporate for the presentations. The days were pretty dead but then the work would come in around 4 or 5PM and then you'd be there tip 7 or 8PM working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to disperse the work sooner.

    Pros

    Their is a huge potential for growth and innovation, but you must be willing to get your hands dirty. The process of getting to the next level is going to be tough but not impossible.

    Cons

    The company has grown so much in the last few years, everything here seems tactical. Always putting our fires. Focus needs to be placed on Strategy and long term goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business needs a Strategic Roadmap with clear objectives to set the tone for the next 5 to 7 years. The organization needs to align Initiatives with those objectives and communicate them out to the organization.

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice, welcoming, and truly passionate about the Hispanic consumer set. In whatever position, you really hit the ground running and given real projects and responsibility.

    Cons

    With ownership changing, there is high turnover of senior management. Sometimes the workplace is overshadowed by the pomp and circumstance of the corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold onto the senior management-- they are great mentors for those just starting out in their career.

    I worked at Univision full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of new opportunities and great people to work for, who come from various companies in the industry, both Hispanic and General Market. Great pay and benefits. A lot of opportunities to grow, given the companies own over 12 networks and is continuously growing, they just announced they are investing in "El Rey" network and they also have Fusion joint venture with ABC. I enjoyed my time at Univision and was promoted twice in 3 years. If you work hard, your efforts are recognized here.

    Cons

    Company going public in 2014, a lot of internal changes and restructuring at the moment
