    I have been working at A&E Networks as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy location, friendly co-workers, short shifts. They encourage EVERYONE, including freelancers to pitch ideas. They support personal projects, the tech and hardware are well maintained and pretty solid.

    Cons

    The IT department is a little impenetrable which makes simple things like getting email or downloading files into a longer than usual process. The freelancer turnover is low, so it's hard to bring in new people. The staff has been shaken up several times in the last few years which does not give people much confidence. Lower than average day rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructuring needs to be done in a more gradual and less traumatic fashion to encourage staff committment. Encourage freelancers to become full time so that we aren't always losing our intellectual assets.

    I worked at A&E Networks full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The internship program at A+E is absolutely incredible. If you are looking for a fantastic opportunity to learn in a great office environment, I would highly recommend applying to intern at A+E networks. Their lunch and learn program provides an incredible opportunity to learn from different departments within A+E.

    Cons

    There are no cons that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More lunch and learns!

    I worked at A&E Networks as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great corporate culture; everybody works hard but also really looks out for one another. The company also really values promoting from within. Case in point: chairman Abbe Raven started off at the company as a production assistant.

    Cons

    Not much to complain about really. I was just an intern at the time, but I did notice that people worked hard and quite a few would always stay late. So perhaps one thing to improve upon is work-life balance? Up the head count when necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just minor details to improve upon. For example, cater to employees with a cafeteria in-house?

    I worked at A&E Networks as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Weekly luncheons exposed interns to other departments in the company. Management truly cares about interns and treated them with respect. I was able to work on several fun projects for my department and felt like I truly made a difference.

    Cons

    Some departments seem distant and there does not seem to be that much inter-office unity, in part due to the layout of the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your internship program!
