    I worked at E! Entertainment Television full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about working at E! is that it's a thriving, exciting, creative work environment. The company has grown exponentially in the past 5 years and it was a privilege to work there.

    Cons

    The salaries are not as high as similar jobs at other companies. Despite that, working at E! is a lot less stressful than some of those other shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good communication can't be stressed enough. That seems to be the key to a healthy and happy department. Management has definitely improved in the past few years.

    The Pay is Crap, But Great on Resume

    I have been working at E! Entertainment Television

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, that's a big reason you stay as long as you do. The perks of the job can be fun, if seeing famous people and getting access to Hollywood events gets you off. E! isn't as cutthroat as some of the network companies, so layoffs don't come very often. E! looks great on your resume.

    Cons

    Pay is below (far below, in fact) what many competitors pay. Only producer level and above are eligible for bonuses, which is quite unfair as the APs do the exact same work the producers do. They'd rather hire someone from the outside than hire from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire from within more, when a job is available, make sure those within the company are aware. Many times the vacant position will pop up online and before you know it you've missed your opportunity. More bonuses for non-producer level employees.

    I have been working at E! Entertainment Television as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot starting from the bottom, and move up quickly. This is a great place to work as an intern or first job, and if you are lucky enough to work with knowledgable people, you will thrive.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there is little training and support after moving up to a certain level. This is evident in the producers and other staff from the middle all the way to the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training. Don't hire or promote people into jobs that they are not prepared for!

    I worked at E! Entertainment Television

    Pros

    Open to new ideas. Casual and supportive environment and opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Pay was lower than market. Culture change when it became part of Comcast and some of the fun and spirit of an independent small company was lost

    Pros

    E! offered me opportunities to grow my career in infinite ways. Many hours and lots of dedication produced great experiences, my growth up the production ladder and memories that I will cherish forever. A greatly talented, youthful but skillful group of people.

    Cons

    Lower average income (balanced by not being pigeon-holed and opportunites for growth).

    I worked at E! Entertainment Television as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's very fast-paced and exciting, and you learn a lot about the ins and outs of the industry very quickly. It can be very hands-on at times.

    Cons

    Many tasks get repetitive, and the hours get very long. It was difficult to balance school and working.

    Intern: Don't Waste Your Time Here

    I worked at E! Entertainment Television as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I don't really see that many pros in having a internship with E! Entertainment. Besides being a recognizable company (not really for great things), they don't offer too many perks. The pay is low, they ask you to do the grunt work, etc.

    Cons

    They don't pay as much as other entertainment companies. They are super disorganized and don't offer any leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to work on actually giving giving intern productive things to do. Interns are very capable of completing things if they are given some guidance and more tasks.

    Pros

    Great people (for the most part) and you can start your work day at 10 am (everyone does)

    Cons

    They do not pay very well so if you arent right out of college this might not be the place for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your people you value them by paying them better!!! And promote better opportunities within
