It was a bit fulfilling

Accountant (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at ABC as an intern for less than a year

ProsWell, the thing is I can watch their shows while working, and my work is as simple as a baby sleeping in his crib.

ConsI don't know. I think that it is important to know where you're going to make yourself comfortable with your work.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo comment. I didn't know anyone from the Management

Great job for 1 year - anything more will make you regret your stay.

I have been working at ABC full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAnnual Pass to Disneyland
Employee Screenings & Events
Autonomy

ConsIt used to be that ABC would request input from employees on their pilots every year. That system is no longer and ABC is continually putting out terrible programming that just won't work. No clear identity as a network. Titles are tossed out like beads during Mardi Gras. The structure is such that once you reach a certain level, you're done; there is no more opportunity for growth. No real feedback on performance - everything is just fine and you're "right on track" because they don't want you to select "moving ahead" (that would be bad).

Advice to Senior ManagementPlace value in employee feedback (don't just listen...take something away from it). Learn how to deliver and receive constructive criticism (key word constructive). Set employees up for success instead of failure.
