    I have been working at E! Entertainment Television full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -9-6PM job -Little to no over time -No weekend work -Small work parties weekly

    Cons

    -Freelancers do not receive any benefits, holiday or sick pay -Freelancers are hired on a one year contract. The contract is rarely renewed, leading to high turn over and diminishing returns. -Poor training -People in senior positions seem clueless

    Advice to Management

    It is a waste of time to hire "freelancers". The high turn over means that trained, efficient workers are leaving all the time. Coworkers are burned out from constantly training new staff. There appears to be no communication between departments. It is a wonder the company has been able to keep going.

    I worked at E! Entertainment Television full-time

    Pros

    The overall company NBC and E! Entertainment is great. The Web Interactive technical department has major severe corruptions going on.

    Cons

    - the department boss has a very low education, frequently use harassment, threatening, bullying, name-calling, exclusion, promoting very incompetence people, to protect his position - deal with extremely incompetent co-workers who are friends with the managers or are in the boss's favor, you have to do their works all the time on top of your own works - deal with managers who know nothing about the field, can't do their jobs, harass you, insult you - discrimination is very severe (female, minorities) - promotions are 99% of the time granted to people who are in the boss's favor, have not seen a fair promotion - work on weekends, stay late over midnights because the boss is letting incompetence co-workers and managers to rule the department - low pay - constantly blamed for bad jobs done by incompetence co-workers or managers who are in the boss's favor - HR is also aware of this team's horrible hostile environment - managers and boss love to talk about how to get away from HR by doing horrible things to other co-workers - unprofessional and absurd behaviors done by people who are in the boss's favor are called different personalities if you ever voiced about it - talented people are eye-sores to the boss and the managers, they will do whatever to get rid of you - overall, engineers and developers should prepared for a North Korea like work envrionment

    Advice to Management

    Keeping incompetence people with very low education, no work ethnics, unable to help the company to generate revenue is a complete waste of money. It also ruined the company's reputations when they use all negative means to keep their positions and force talented and productive people out. At the end of the day, a company still need to make money. First, wasting money on their salaries, then forcing people who can actually help to build the company and increase revenue out of the company is a horrible downward spiral. E! Interactive seriously need to concern about the web technical department. No work environment I have worked for is as horrible as this one. Not even close to how bad this work environment is.

    I have been working at E! Entertainment Television full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people who work here are mostly nice and fun. No one is trying to stab you in the back. The work environment is casual. Management actually adheres to labor laws so there isn't any unpaid overtime or anything like that.

    Cons

    This used to be a super fun and supportive work environment. Now there is endless restructuring (layoffs), constant re-brands/programing changes, and frequent leadership changes that have lead to poor morale. The pay is really low, which used to be offset by such a fun work environment and job security. I haven't heard of anyone being promoted in a really long time so there isn't a lot of advancement opportunities or opportunities to move laterally. Talented people are being let go or are jumping ship so the building is like a sad ghost town now.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Try holding on to talented people and offer decent pay and promote from within.

    Pros

    Nice people, good social interactions, dynamic work challenges. Enjoyable colleagues, room for growth.

    Cons

    Very last minute deadlines, lack of communication from top down as to changing tides and deadlines. Top heavy organization with execs managing up to keep their jobs but not managing down very well to keep the machine humming.

    Advice to Management

    Genuine mentorship is needed. Execs are pretty friendly overall, morale is up and down.

    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 Management

    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.


  9. The Pay is Crap, But Great on Resume

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 Management

    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.

    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
