    Pros

    Best benefits I've ever had. There are no dull moments and the people you work with are generally good at what they do. It's a great resume builder to have WWE on it and the pace of work will keep you on your toes.

    Cons

    It's expected that you will work overtime. Depending on your department, you can regularly expect to work well into the evening on a fairly regular basis. Projects routinely get changed at the last minute time and time again, which leads to inefficiencies that management expects the grunts to pick up the slack. As others noted, they will almost always hire outside for open manager spots, so good luck moving up.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep your workers long term, respect their personal time and plan better. If things change, push back deadlines too.

    Pros

    Everyday at WWE is a different day and presents different challenges, so there is never a dull moment. The employees are talented and are very passionate about this brand. WWE also values their employees and illustrates that by providing opportunities internally and always looking to grow talent from within.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is always a challenge no matter where you work, but I think it is more challenging at WWE especially if you are a mom wanting to be successful in your career. I also think that promotions and compensations are inconsistent across the company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others as you would want to be treated.

    Pros

    I have been working at WWE for nearly 4 years. It has been a terrific experience both professionally and personally. I have been provided with the opportunity to learn, grow and move within the company. Staff is collaborative and some of the most hard working dedicated people I have ever met. I enjoy coming to work every day and look forward to many years to come.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be challenging at times when working for a 24/7 global entertainment company.

    Pros

    an experience that will never be matched; a great community.

    Cons

    was only there for 3 years and my whole department was moved (seating and floors) at least 3 times, changed bosses at least 3 times and went through so much infrastructure changes it was detrimental to the work.

    Advice to Management

    compensation was below average, bonuses were unfairly given out.

    Pros

    - Fun work environment

    - People are really passionate about their jobs

    - You have a lot of opportunity to try your hand at different projects and initiatives, so it's a great place to work if you're looking to gain experience and really learn a lot from your job

    - Great Benefits (Gym in-house, Cafeteria onsite, a lot of paid time off, Medical Coverage, Tickets to events, etc.)

    - It's a family company and that really shows in their culture and beliefs

    Cons

    - The company could offer more opportunities for different departments to interact in ways other than just through business (mixers, events, lunches, etc.)

    Pros

    Very welcoming to young talent with many internal growth opportunities. The benefits are generous and the community of employees is a benefit in itself. Very hard working culture where you can make a difference at any level.

    Cons

    Limited work-life balance. At times, fast paced culture, although exciting, can result in highly stressful work environment. Communication within the company is another point of possible improvement.

    Positive experience working here

    I worked at World Wrestling Entertainment

    Pros

    The people are really passionate about the brand, and I got a ton of hands-on experience. The product that this company puts out drives people wild, and there's a lot of talent behind that.

    Cons

    The location is not ideal, and it is very difficult to commute there if you do not have a car. When I worked there, WWE offered a commuter shuttle. However, since I often worked late, it was unavailable when I needed it. Luckily people would offer me rides.
