    Pros

    WWE is a great place to work if you’re looking to advance your career, be challenged on a daily basis and work in a fun, fast-paced environment. Employees are rewarded and recognized for their hard work. There's also a great sense of accomplishment among employees. It's a great feeling knowing you're making a real impact to the business.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is definitely something that’s difficult to manage.

    Pros

    If you are a fan like I am, it's a pretty awesome experience interning at WWE. The people are extremely nice and you wear a number of different hats depending on your department.

    Cons

    None besides the fact that it wasn't paid. I would've preferred to work full-time and have it be paid as opposed to 20 hours and no pay.

    Advice to Management

    Didn't deal with upper management too much, but I would advise to make yourselves more available to subordinates. I've heard the work-life balance is tough, but I didn't experience that as a part-time Intern.

    Pros

    Talented/passionate employees. Really generous benefits. Great overall culture.

    Cons

    Perception we are only a "wrestling" company. True leadership not valued-- the people closest to Vince are highly political and are self-serving. Communications from the highest levels is sporadic (we never hear directly from Vince, Michelle Wilson or George Barrios)

    Advice to Management

    Have to do a better job of bringing people on the journey. We believe in what we are doing but we get more information from the dirt sheets and Yahoo Finance than anything from our internal communications.

  6. I think Wwe is a way to let anger out. And to be fit

    I worked at World Wrestling Entertainment as an intern

    Pros

    Fun work environment, occasional access to local events, great colleagues who are passionate about the organization and end product

    Cons

    May be tough to gauge growth potential depending on what group you're in. There can be long hours sometimes if there is an upcoming event or if you're on an understaffed team

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage growth and learning

    Lots of growth and opportunities.

    Pros

    Great work colleagues, fast paced work environment, creative work, great benefits, challenging projects, free gym.

    Cons

    Communication issues, long hours, "hurry up and wait" work cycle, last second changes and demands, not a very inspiring physical work environment (production facility).

    Pros

    Most of the people there are highly motivated, talented and care about doing a great job. The office has everything from cafeteria to gym. Live events and people were great. Some tremendous management at times. Overall great experience

    Cons

    There were a few who just "didn't get it" and some managers and dept. heads are clueless how to deal with people. There were more than a couple department heads who talked down to employees and walked around with their nose in the air. The ones you suspect would be arrogant were the most professional. Others had to "show" or tell you how important they were. Long hours and there really is no life outside WWE

    Advice to Management

    Find people who know what they're doing and stick with them!

    Pros

    Fast-paced, young, great product. Everyone I have met is fun, honest, and a hard-worker. It seems like everyone loves what they do which makes it so easy to want to work there.

    Cons

    It is a very hectic work environment...you have to be willing to put in the hours to get the benefit.

    Pros

    WWE is an amazing place to work. Executive management expects the best - only those that can keep up and deliver make it. There is a true collaborative environment that's rare in any industry - the staff cares about each other and the brand. I've never seen any organization have such passion for its fans - it's amazing.

    Cons

    If you can't keep up you are quickly left behind. Work / life balance is tough. Sometimes excellence demands sacrifice, and that can be difficult to handle at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the fans and you'll always succeed. Work / life balance issue needs to be addressed.
