    I have been working at ABC Television as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone is nice. Treated well by upper management. Everyone was helpful. Pay was pretty good. Work/life balance was much better than working freelance on a series.

    Cons

    Wish there were more openings to stay full time.

    I have been working at ABC Television full-time

    Pros

    Good diversity; good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not very forward thinking; very corporate. Lack of communication between groups and from upper management. Middle management and below feel like cogs in a machine and not appreciated for their hard work or used efficiently. Very siloed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities for your staff to grow and develop.

    Good company but don't expect to rise through the ranks quickly

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at ABC Television

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, great Disney benefits package, excellent location in NYC, professional development workshops, good cafeterias

    Cons

    There's a bit of a glass ceiling, people actually die out of some of the higher level executive jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cultivate a warmer, less stuffy environment. It's the 21st century and network t.v. has a different place in media. Don't take yourself too seriously.
