    I worked at Univision as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Personal Growth, hispanic culture makes it easy-going and fun, Many fun events to go to,

    Cons

    It's disorganized. The pay was really low. I felt that I was taken advantage. Teaneck location is boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - need to keep more track of the intern's managers, some take advantage. It was HR's first time holding an internship team so it seemed disorganized. People are pretentious even though they have no reason to be.

    I have been working at Univision full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is in growth mode in all aspects of the business. They have a strong brand affinity w/ their consumer and while so many are only just waking up to the importance of Hispanics this is a company that has been serving the community for a long time. There is also a real focus on employee develpment and training, which is rewarding for anyone trying to continue to learn and grow. This is the kind of place where hard work is rewarded.

    Cons

    Like most places these days, there arent enough people. The only upside to this is that people who are hungry and hard working can really thrive and grow here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people:-)

    I have been working at Univision full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Audience in Spanish and now English with Fusion and El Rey. Good environment, atmosphere. Continuing to move the needle and has the capital backing for investment. Opened at one time to only Hispanic workers, now English speaking employees are more than welcome and at high levels of the organization.

    Cons

    At times moves too fast without thinking too long. Quit depending on Televisa for content.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving forward!

    Former Employee - Strategies and Insights Intern in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Univision part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working at Univision was a great experience for me. I was able to learn a lot about Excel, PowerPoint, and many other important programs that will be beneficial for future jobs. The mentoring is amazing with the Strategies and Insights department, and at the end of the internship, you are to make a 20 minute presentation researching about the company.

    Cons

    There are some times where there might not be anything to do.

    I worked at Univision

    Pros

    The management is great and very considerate of employees. THe environment is very casual and laid back, but work gets done and cooperation between departments and colleagues is extensive. Everyone seems to really enjoy working there and employees take pride in the work they do.

    Cons

    The biggest downside of working at Univision, in my experience, is the lack of opportunity for advancement. While there is room for lateral movement, there is no real upward growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise upper management to provide more opportunities for employees to move up within the company. Also, there are many practices that are still in place just because they have always been done that way. New innovations have to be made in order for operations to run more smoothly and more effectively.
