    Great organization with a lot of growth potential

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsMay 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 Senior ManagementContinue to encourage growth and learning

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    Amazing place to work

    Intern (Former Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsFast-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.

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

    Great company with a few bad apples

    Manager (Former Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsMost 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

    ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementFind people who know what they're doing and stick with them!

    Great place to work. They expect the best - and they get it!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWWE 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.

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

    it is a dream

    Professional Wrestler (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    Proswrestling is my life and wwe opened the gateway for me to achieve this dream and this is the only company which will help me do it

    Conswwe should reduce a little bit the price of tickets for the show because the people should pay a little bit cheap tickets they want to have fun

    Advice to Senior Managementtaking management doesn't mean that you are the one who dominates with anger and using authority doesn't mean to use it personally but in case of business

    A rewarding summer experience.

    Summer Intern (Former Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsThe summer internship experience was very rewarding and offered ample opportunity to explore the areas I was interested in. Everyone I interacted with was friendly, and more than willing to help with my personal growth. I really would recommend working for this company.

    ConsAs a summer intern you do not get paid. This was a major downside for me, but I did receive school credit. With that said, the experience was one of the best I have had as an intern.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Dynamic, exciting, and only for the best and brightest

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI've read all of the other reviews, and I can assure you that most of these people are bottom 10% performers and that's why they are on here whining. WWE is not an easy place to work, but it's fun and exciting. If you want a 9-5 job, good luck finding that in the Entertainment Industry. WWE is truly a dynamic place to work with no shortage of challenges and opportunities. WWE is a place that prides itself on hard work and A+ performers. If you like a challenge, are confident and smart, then WWE might be a great fit for you. And if you're not having any fun it's your own fault! I love it here!

    ConsI'll agree that work-life balance can be a challenge here. It's not always like that, but there's always a lot to accomplish. The trade-off is the experience you will gain and the opportunities for promotion are there if you're good (and not "afraid" to challenge the status-quo as some others have indicated). Don't come here if you expect not to be challenged daily and pushed to do better than you ever have before.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExamine the work-life balance issue and work with your employees to create a mutually beneficial balance.
